NFL Rumors: Dallas Cowboys likely to cut Miles Austin


The Dallas Cowboys are a team that needs this offseason to go well, more so that they’ve needed any other offseason to go well. The playoff-less seasons are stacking up and Jerry Jones continues to look like a clown while slowly killing everything the team used to be about.

With the prestige of the Cowboys infected by losing, the team is looking to make changes in the offseason and one of those changes seems to be moving on from wide receiver Miles Austin. Jones said this week that it’s too early to talk about Austin’s contract but he’s likely to be cut in June, something ESPN.com blogger Todd Archer can see coming already.

From all the sounds coming from Valley Ranch, the Cowboys want to move on. Austin just couldn’t get going in 2013 with those hamstring injuries. I’ve long defended him and felt he was a good fit after what he did in 2012. But he just couldn’t get over those injuries. It’s a shame.

Austin may latch on somewhere else, but it appears the days of him blossoming into a potential star are behind him and he’s going to have to take a reduced role wherever he lands.

    Dallas parting ways with Austin is the worst kept secret in the NFL. I don’t particularly mind seeing him go. I do mind seeing him go if Dallas hasn’t at least tried to trade him or package him or made some effort to get something back out of the years of investment they’ve put into him, first.
