St. Louis Rams Signs Tavon Austin, Alec Ogletree, Stedman Bailey

As the news continues to roll in that a number of teams are coming to agreements with their top draft picks, the St. Louis Rams have decided to join the party. St. Louis has agreed to a four-year contract with No. 8 overall pick Tavon Austin. Austin was the most dynamic playmakers available in the 2013 NFL Draft class and he has done nothing but stand out in minicamps and continue to make big plays.

The future looks bright for Austin and the team is excited to see what he can do in training camp and in the preseason.

St. Louis has also agreed to terms with No. 30 overall pick Alec Ogletree, third-round selection Stedman Bailey and fourth-round pick Barrett Jones. It’s safe to say it was a productive day for the team’s front office.

The Rams could end up being one of the most exciting young teams in the league if all of their offensive weapons step up. St. Louis also signed Jared Cook in free agency, so all of the weapons are in place for Sam Bradford to have a breakout season.
