Rams HC on Tavon Austin this season: 'Could be a breakout year'
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher is confident wide receiver Tavon Austin will finally live up to the hype that surrounded him when the franchise made him the first receiver selected in the 2013 draft, per NBC Sports.

“This has nothing to do with Tavon,” Fisher said. “It’s not a reflection on what he’s done. Tavon has done everything he possibly can. He’s in great shape, and he’s highly talented and a passionate teammate. This has been more about the circumstances of our situation. This potentially could be a breakout year for him. Because he’s got the potential to win outside and inside.”

Austin has recorded just 71 catcher for 660 yards in his first two seasons with the Rams.

Rams WR Tavon Austin prepared to take next step on the field
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin is primed to have a dominant season in 2016. Offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti, who was promoted from quarterbacks coach, is already planning on how to use Austin's explosiveness, per the team website.

“He’s a guy you can put out there every down and the defense has to recognize, ‘Hey, Tavon’s on the field,’” Cignetti said. “So, whether it’s running down-the-field routes, intermediate routes, short routes or manipulating him touches, the defense always has to be aware of where’s Tavon Austin.”

Austin has accounted for 660 receiving yards and 375 rushing yards since being drafted eighth overall in 2013, but he's ready to elevate his play and contribute more to the team.

“I definitely feel good about this year,” Austin said. “My first two years were pretty much learning years and I feel like it’s time for me to step my game up on my end and keep doing what I’ve always done. Have fun, make plays and hopefully it will be a switch from the other years.”

Rams OC Cignetti plans to get Tavon Austin more involved
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

New Rams offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti said Friday that he plans to get wide receiver Tavon Austin more involved in the offense moving forward, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Cignetti served as the team's quarterbacks coach before being promoted to the coordinator role, so he already has some inkling of the abilities of Austin, who has been a limited contributor since being selected in the first round of the 2013 draft. He caught just 31 passes for 242 yards in 2014 while adding 224 yards on 36 carries, scoring two touchdowns on the ground.

Wideout Tavon Austin ran three times for 25 yards and had a 15-yard reception. Backup running back Benny Cunningham ran once for minus-1 yard and caught two passes for 19 yards. Tight end Cory Harkey made a 1-yard catch.

They'll all finish the season at Seattle.
