I would expect Austin to still get some looks in punt return and kick return as well., adding Austin also gives the Cowboys another pass catching option out of the backfield. He'll hit free agency after the 2018 season.

Owner Jerry Jones alluded to another possible move at receiver Friday night.

A first-round selection by the Rams in 2013, Austin played in 78 games for the franchise, starting in 50 of them. He was supposed to be an x-factor in the Rams offense, but never found a consistent role. Austin has made just 15 career catches on balls thrown at least 15 yards downfield, according to ESPN. Austin had a career-high five touchdowns in 2015 and his most yards with 509 a year later.

Following Saturday's trade, Austin should find himself in more comfortable surroundings as he seeks to evolve into a consistent threat-no matter how he receives his touches.

Southampton, hoping to extend their six-season stint in the top flight, are one point adrift of safety with three games left. That was his 50th Premier League goal in his time with Arsenal and the Blues, and it set the latter on their way to victory.

The investment for the Cowboys is minimal.

Austin was expected to be released by the Rams earlier in the offseason, but he stuck on the roster after agreeing to restructure his contract. The move basically saves the Rams $1 million in guaranteed money that was coming in the form of base salary, also eliminating the chance of paying him $3 million in incentives. And that's the way the Cowboys are rumored to be interested in using the former Ram, as a running back.
