National writer: Cowboys replacing Dez Bryant with Allen Hurns, Tavon Austin one of 2018's 'biggest bets'

The Cowboys' approach to replacing No. 1 receiver Dez Bryant has been met with both criticism and intrigue.Dallas, who opted to release Bryant after most free agent wide receivers were spoken for, did little to address its need for a top wide-out during the NFL Draft.

Can Cowboys OC Scott Linehan fix Tavon Austin’s career?

Can Cowboys OC Scott Linehan fix Tavon Austin’s career?

The Cowboys playcaller is cooking up a plan for speedy WR Tavon Austin but will it bring results?

Ryan Switzer says Cowboys may have viewed him as a running back

Ryan Switzer says Cowboys may have viewed him as a running back

The former Cowboy had some thoughts as he headed west. The collective world of Cowboys fans everywhere was a little bit shook last Saturday afternoon when the team traded away one of its second-year players in Ryan Switzer. Dallas flipped the wide receiver (we’ll get to that in a second) to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for defensive tackle Jihad Ward. Part of the reason they were able to do this was a trade earlier in the day that netted them Rams wideout Tavon Austin.

Tavon Austin should be the man on special teams charged with making things happen

An important position needs a new featured face. When the Dallas Cowboys traded Ryan Switzer last Saturday, they dealt away more than just an option in the passing game. They shipped off their primary kick and punt returner. Switzer played well in the return game, so well that he even housed a punt for a score back on November 30th against the Redskins. His lowest point in this facet indisputably came in October against the Rams when his muffed punt seriously turned the game. Coincidentally, it’s a former member of the Rams that could help fill the void Switzer leaves behind. Tavon...

Cowboys draft day trades: Evaluating the contributions of Tavon Austin & Jihad Ward

Taking a closer look at the two veterans the Cowboys traded for on draft day. Day three of the 2018 NFL was an interesting one for the Dallas Cowboys. They walked in with seven picks and walked out with eight players. Though most of us thought the Cowboys would try to move some picks, they doubled down on competition as this roster will be pretty full come OTA’s and training camp. What was more interesting about last Saturday was the moves the Cowboys did make and why they made them. The first trade the Cowboys made was to send pick 192 in the sixth round to the Rams for Tavon Austin....
