The Los Angeles Rams traded wide receiver Tavon Austin to the Dallas Cowboys for a sixth round draft pick, marking a new start for a Mountaineers legend. Austin, who is still a young speedster at 27 years old, has big play ability and is versatile enough to make an impact.

The compensation heading to Los Angeles is only a sixth-round selection, No. 192 overall. Austin has been an underachiever in five seasons out of West Virginia, but maybe a move to Jerry's World can recharge those batteries and lead to some fantasy value. All told, he had a career-low 13 receptions for 47 yards to complement 59 carries for 270 yards and a touchdown. He also recorded 1,238 rushing yards for nine touchdowns, and scored three punts returned for touchdowns.

Dallas' current wide-receiving look on the depth chart isn't anything to write home about.

They signed former Jacksonville Jaguars wideout Allen Hurns in free agency and also added Colorado State receiver Michael Gallup in the third round of the draft.

Stephen Jones said on Saturday that the team feels it can get Tavon Austin 12 touches per game, which would be an astronomical number compared to the action he saw last season, or lack thereof.
