The Los Angeles Rams may not be done making trades. According to sources, the team may be willing to deal wide receiver Tavon Austin. Of course, that’s for the right price.
He has become expendable after the Rams acquired wide receiver Sammy Watkins in a trade on Friday with the Buffalo Bills. Watkins and Robert Woods, former Bills wide out, are expected to be Jared Goff’s starting wide receivers this season.
Austin has spend his entire career with the Rams franchise. He was the 8th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams.
Austin signed a four-year, $42 million deal with the Rams, including $28.5 million guaranteed, in 2016. This deal includes his previous 2018 contract worth $8 million.
In 2019, he’s going to make $9.35 million, before going to $9.5 million in 2020. The final year of his contract will end with a $9.2 million salary. Any team acquiring him will do so for his potential.
He had his best season last season after the team moved to Los Angeles. He had 58 receptions for 509 yards and three touchdowns in 15 starts.
He also had 28 carries for a 159 yards and a touchdown.
Austin has primarily been known as a speedy guy, who can be used in multiple facets of the game.
