The Rams have traded wide receiver Tavon Austin to the Cowboys in exchange for a 2018 sixth-round draft pick.

A first-round selection by the Rams in 2013, Austin played in 78 games for the franchise, starting in 50 of them. Throughout his five years with the club, the West Virginia product was an integral part of the team's offense and special teams units. But after failing to remain healthy throughout the 2017 offseason, he struggled to carve out a role in head coach Sean McVay's new offense.

Austin finishes his time with the Rams with 194 career receptions for 1,689 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. He also recorded 1,238 rushing yards for nine touchdowns, and scored three punts returned for touchdowns.

Los Angeles received the No. 192 overall pick from Dallas in exchange for Austin. As it stands now, the Rams hold seven picks in the sixth round.
