    I'm a little surprised there hasn't been more movement here....Bring him back? or move on?...I'm in the camp of bring him back....Incentive deal.

    I thought the Cowboys would bring him back. There doesn't seem to be any interest in that. At least not yet. Any deal should be a reasonable one. Once Cobb signed with the Texans I expected some action.

    Would prefer someone younger and/or more reliable....draft or another veteran. He just hasnt made the most of his opportunity...granted it was with Garrett...but the guy is always dinged up or rarely shows up.

    I still think he could be a weapon.....Garrett coddled his players from injury. Hopefully that changes under McCarthy. Either produce....or get out. This attitude of "well we don't want to get players injured...so let's don't use them"....has got to stop.

    He's done and was done before we got him. If the Rams, with their creative offense, couldn't find ways to use him then we darn sure wasn't going to.

    Tavon has never been used correctly IMHO. I hope he comes back and is used correctly by this new regime. And hope he stays healthy. Can't make the club in the tub!

    Cowboys probably waiting to see who they are able to pick during the draft...first. If no speedy WR is found, I can see the Cowboys reaching out to Tavon Austin.

    If we miss out on Henry Ruggs and KJ Hamler early then i can see some interest in wanting to bring back Austin because of his speed in an incentive laden deal so he will have to produce to get his full paycheck. Especially if we end up drafting a possession type receiver in the draft to fill the slot.

    I was a bigger believer in Austin most. That said he was generally bad at the one aspect he was being counter on as a punt returner.

    I think we would want him back if for nothing else as a punt returner. But you have to ask yourself.....does Tavon actually fit the WC offense? He is definitely not the prototype size.

    Maybe the new staff will let him return a punt with the game on the line and no time/timeouts.

    I'm guessing that if they wanted him back, it would have happened already.

    No, Dallas need to draft a cheaper, faster and younger player.

    Im glad the Tavon Austin experiment is over. The guys is fast but thats it. After watching Cobb replace Austin and come in last season and have good year as the 3rd WR they realize an upgrade is needed at the 3rd WR spot.

    Pollard is our new RB/WR gimmick guy. We don't need another, we need a 3rd down possession veteran who can back up the starters. That's not Austin.

    I liked him and thought we didn't use him enough. He produced when they gave him the ball. But I don't see keeping a 2nd gimmick player on offense, especially when the 2nd is the veteran. Last year he's the bridge for Pollard. This year we cross that bridge.

    I agree. There sure doesn't seem to be any hurry. And if Bones Fassel really like him that much, I'd think they would have made it more of a priority to keep him.
