Rams trade Tavon Austin to cowboys

Recommended Posts

And everyone was wondering who would catch passes in Dallas....pshhh....for those wondering, its still the same people even after this trade. Tavon isn't catching many.

So they got a 6th round pick for Austin?

ANYTHING they get is a gift.  Why?  Because GM Snead was on the hook for the 7M anyways, it was guaranteed.  But he got Austin to convert to 1M salary and 6M roster bonus earlier - what it meant was that a team trading for him would get only a 1M salary hit.  So it made Austin tradeable. 

Given the Rams were stuck paying 7M anyways before, now they save 1M and get a pick.   For a guy they couldn't use anymore.   Really subtle but brilliant cap management & draft capital move by Snead.

For DAL, they get a gadget guy and ST returner for 1M.  Can't pan it for them.   I salute Snead's creativity.

Man, I still remember being disappointed his draft stock flew so high that the Ravens didn't have a shot at taking him....

This works for the Rams, even if they eat the dead money. And it might work for the Cowboys, because I can see Austin making at least a few plays for Dak Prescott.

Maybe he can play some backup RB. Cowboys got a big hole there.

Apparently, that's the plan. He's going to move to RB.

Tavon Austin is really fast, but that is all he is.

Not a good football player and a clear bust.

I feel like half your posts are just mocking the way black athletes talk.

A fair and justified point, my dear fellow! I have made the necessary corrections above, better capturing Tavon's idiom.

Only thing this guy is good at is a PR. Ye he is fast but he is not a good WR and i doubt he will produce much as a third down back as Elliot will get the bulk of the playing time.

He really isn’t. He fumbles as many as he catches.
