#LARams have traded Tavon Austin to the Dallas Cowboys.

Dallas, on the other hand, was in need of some help at the wide receiver position.

The Los Angeles Rams have traded wide receiver Tavon Austin to the Dallas Cowboys for a sixth-round pick (192nd overall), giving the Rams a whopping seven picks in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Throughout his five years with the club, the West Virginia product was an integral part of the team's offense and special teams units. In return, the Rams will receive a sixth-round pick.

If the Cowboys demonstrate a commitment to deploying him in new and unique ways, there's a good chance Austin could finally reach his potential and live up to the hefty deal he signed with the Rams. He has a total of 1,689 yards on 194 catches over five National Football League seasons.

James stays flawless in first round as Cavs advance
James' buzzer beating 3 pointer was a devastating blow to IN , but fortunately for them they were able to bounce back IN game 6 . Houston is an outstanding perimeter team and you need all of your weapons at your disposal which they clearly don't have.

He will most likely serve as receiver/running back for the Cowboys as they try to get his speed in space out the backfield and on jet sweeps as a change of pace to the power running of Ezekiel Elliott. Standing in at 5-foot-8, Austin is more of a deep threat or slot wide receiver. It remains to be seen if Austin will actually bring that to the table in 2018. He has had no more than 509 yards in any of his first 5 National Football League seasons.

Austin had his contract reduced to one-year in March when the Rams paid him a $4 million roster bonus.

Expect to see the Cowboys end up winning this trade.
