Rams trade WR Tavon Austin to the Cowboys

The Cowboys also traded wide receiver Ryan Switzer, who was a fourth-round selection previous year, for defensive tackle Jihad Ward from the Oakland Raiders. That's how they view Tavon Austin.

Austin's 288 catches at West Virginia and 3,413 receiving yards remain school records, as do the 344 rushing yards he amassed in a 50-49 loss to Oklahoma in 2012.

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

Austin finished last season with 13 receptions for 47 yards. And while Austin does have game changing speed, he's averaging just 8.7 yards per reception for his career, which is another red flag. His role could grow in Dallas, as the Cowboys look to replace former star Dez Bryant. Prescott will be able to throw him short passes and watch him run with them. Whether that's more an issue with Austin or his offensive coaches to date remains to be seen.

Ford phasing out sedans in United States market
The new Ford Ranger and the expected return of the Ford Bronco will fill out the 2019/2020 line up. Last year, the Chicago plant made 316,000 Explorer SUVs and 51,000 Taurus sedans, Felker said.

His most prolific season to date came in 2015, when he managed 907 yards from scrimmage, 434 of which came on carries out of the backfield.

At 28 years of age, Austin has a fresh start and a chance to prove that the Rams did not know how to use him.

Expect to see the Cowboys end up winning this trade.
