Tavon Austin: Playbook was 'like Spanish to me' last year
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rams receiver Tavon Austin admitted to the Associated Press that he didn't grasp the playbook as a rookie, especially early in the season. "I didn't really know what was going on," Austin said. "Everything looked like Spanish and sounded like Spanish to me."

The No. 8 overall pick from 2013 said he's comfortable with the system now.

"I understand the plays, the depth, the routes, the splits and everything," Austin said. "I just feel good that I can make some plays. Definitely, the game's slowed down for me."

Tavon Austin has Rams' offense 'down cold'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer referred to Tavon Austin as an "exciting player" and believes he'll be far more effective in 2014 because it will be his second year in the St. Louis offense. 

"Moving him around to a lot of different spots. You'll see us hand him the ball, doing some different things," Schottenheimer said. "He's playing so much faster just because he knows what we're doing. He has the system down cold. Some of the protections that he struggled with last year ... when they bring people off his face, he knows what to do now and that certainly helps. But, he had a really good OTA."

Game slowed down for Tavon Austin
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rams receiver Tavon Austin, the No. 8 overall pick in 2013, said the game slowed down for him toward the end of last season. "It’s all about getting comfortable," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"It was a pretty big adjustment for me at first," he added. "The playbook was different. The speed of the game was different. I eventually caught on and the game settled down."

St. Louis expects a lot more in 2014 from Austin, who caught 40 passes and scored six touchdowns as a rookie. One score came on a running play, another on a punt return.

Rams see big jump coming for Tavon Austin
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rams coach Jeff Fisher displayed no concern about receiver/returner Tavon Austin falling short of expectations as a rookie, reports ESPN.com. Fisher expressed confidence Austin will take a big step forward in 2014.

“We’re not disappointed in what his production was last year at all," Fisher said. "One of the things that was misleading was he had two or three returns called back -- one against Dallas --and then he got hurt. I think another year in the program, in the offense, OTAs, training camp, you’ll see more production. I think we’ll do a better job of using him now that we know what he’s capable of doing. Kind of looking forward to see him improve from year one to year two."

Rams don't view receiver as a need
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chris Givens led Rams wideouts with just 569 receiving yards, but general manager Les Snead doesn't think the team needs to upgrade at the position. “I think our receivers right now, I truly believe as they progress … we cannot have another receiver around here, and we’re going to be a good football team," Snead told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Rookie Tavon Austin led the wideouts with 40 catches, two more than Austin Pettis and six more than Givens.
