The Buffalo Bills have strengthened their wide receiver corps by acquiring a new player. Tavon Austin, a veteran who has signed a one-year contract with the organization, brings a variety of desirable qualities to the table for the coaching staff, including experience and adaptability.
Austin, who is 31 years old, is a well-known player. He had been selected in the first round previously, and he had played with the Los Angeles Rams from his rookie season until 2017.
Since then, he has had brief stints with the Dallas Cowboys (2018-2019), the Green Bay Packers (2020), and, most recently, the Jacksonville Jaguars (2021).
Austin was selected by the (St. Louis) Rams in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Two factors contributed to Austin’s good placement in the competition. One of them was connected to his time spent in college in West Virginia.
In 2021, ESPN compiled a list of the top fifty college players from the previous fifty years and ranked them. Austin finished in 37th place overall.
In addition, Austin and his former West Virginia University colleague Stedman Bailey were chosen by Bleacher Report as one of the top college football tandems since the year 2000.
