Austin had wrist surgery in early May and will miss OTAs. He is expected to be ready for the open of training camp.

Summary

After an electric 2015 season of nine offensive touchdowns on a career-high 104 touches, Tavon Austin was lacking the same big-play punch in 2016. Austin caught a career-high 58 passs, but for an anemic 8.8 yards-per-catch and just three touchdowns through the air. On the ground, Austin averaged less than two carries each week. With leading 2016 receiver Kenny Britt gone and a new coaching staff, Austin offers untapped potential as the most notable deep threat in the same vein of DeSean Jackson. However, Austin has yet to be used much as a perimeter receiver through three seasons. Robert Woods is the notable free agent addition on the depth chart, but profiles as more of a chain-mover than dynamic playmaker for the Rams. Austin, along with running back Todd Gurley, offer the offense its big-play potential. (May 21)
