Cowboys would be 'misguided' to think Tavon Austin could replace Cole Beasley's production, but here's a WR who could

Jean-Jacques Taylor, Cowboys insider for NBC 5 in Dallas-Fort Worth (KXAS-TV) and host of JaM Session 9 a.m.-1 p.m. weekdays on 103.3 KESN-FM, answered your questions in a recent live chat. Here are some highlights:Whether the Cowboys decide to play Tavon Austin, Allen Hurns, or even sign Randall Cobb as our slot receiver, do you think the Cowboys draft Andy Isabella if he's sitting there with our 90th pick?JJT: Isabella has a lot of speed but he's a little guy in a big man's league. While he has straight line speed, his agility times were slower than that of Ryan Switzer. He's an intriguing...

DeMarcus Lawrence has been tagged, and will eventually get a new long-term deal. They have brought back Tavon Austin, Cameron Fleming, Justin...

Why the Dallas Cowboys are better off after re-signing Tavon Austin, letting Cole Beasley walk

Let's look at the reasons besides money, the obvious place to start.Beasley was Dak Prescott's best bud, an asset to his development early. But his value diminished with the acquisition of Amari Cooper and drafting of Michael Gallup. Cooper can do everything Beasley does, and he's bigger, faster and stronger. Gallup's development over the second half of his rookie season also made him a more viable target.The Cowboys...

Tavon Austin working out at the Star, what does this say about his free agency prospects?

The speedster has returned to Dallas just in time for free agency. The new league year officially begins next Wednesday at 4:00 PM EST, which means that impending free agents will officially be allowed to negotiate deals with NFL teams. While teams are allowed to negotiate with their own soon-to-be free agents, some teams tend to let lower priority players hit the open market before negotiating. For the Cowboys, that might end up being their tactic with Tavon Austin, who was acquired by the Cowboys last year during the NFL Draft.
