Like Free was cut the day we drafted Tyron Smith, Miles was cut last year when Dez clearly passed him as lead WR. We can't pay 8m for a 2nd WR unless he is a perennial Pro Bowler or we are taking Super Bowl shots.
Austin is freakishly talented, but also not young, not resilient and not always around Valley Ranch.
I think this is a tough call. Very hard to replace Austin at his best. But the 500k per game cost is pretty large when he catching 2 passes for 30 yards.
