Austin was phased out of the Rams' offense last year, catching only 13 passes (on 22 targets) for 56 yards and zero touchdowns. The offseason acquisition of Brandin Cooks added to an already crowded Rams WRs corps, making Austin expendable. He now goes to a Cowboys team in need of pass-catchers, but he will likely be nothing more than the third or fourth option in the passing game.
