  • Tavon Austin: Officially let go from Buffalo

    The Bills cut Austin from their practice squad Thursday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Austin was dismissed from the Bills' practice squad Thursday after the team was given a practice squad exemption for the 32-year-old Wednesday. Across nine NFL seasons, Austin has recorded 244 receptions, 2,239 yards and 16 touchdowns, while he's also added 199 rushes for 1,361 yards and 10 more scores in that span. However, the 176-pounder has proven to be an effective return specialist throughout his career, as he's amassed 1,515 total punt-return yards. Austin could still provide the same boost as a returner for another team if given the opportunity.

  • Tavon Austin: Parting ways with Bills

    The Bills were given a practice squad exemption for Austin on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Austin previously signed with Buffalo's practice squad after failing to carve out a roster spot in the team's crowded wide receiver corps this preseason. The 32-year-old caught 24 of his 37 targets for 213 yards and a touchdown over 13 games with Jacksonville last season, marking his most significant usage in the passing game since 2016 with the Rams. Austin totaled 1,515 punt-return yards and 1,361 rushing yards during his first nine seasons in the NFL, and his best value may come in a similar specialist role moving forward.

  • Tavon Austin: Joins Buffalo's practice squad

    Austin signed with the Bills' practice squad Wednesday, Alec White of the team's official site reports.

    Austin didn't garner much interest on the open market after being released by Buffalo, so he'll settle for a spot on the practice squad. He fills a similar gadget role to the one occupied by Isaiah McKenzie (undisclosed) and Jamison Crowder. so Austin's best chance at getting a shot with the Bills during the season would likely be in the event of an injury to one of those two.

  • Tavon Austin: No room in crowded offense

    Austin was released by the Bills on Monday.

    The Bills have a whole host of promising receivers competing for limited spots, and several of the younger players have simply shined more than the 2013 first-round pick this summer. Austin's best bet to latching on with another team may be finding a home where a capable punt returner is needed.

  • Bills' Tavon Austin: Finds home in Buffalo

    The Bills signed Austin to a one-year contract Friday.

    Austin will get a chance to compete for a role in Buffalo's high-octane offense heading into his age-31 season. The veteran appeared in 13 games with the Jaguars last year and managed 24 catches for 213 yards and one touchdown on 37 targets. If he can log a strong offseason, Austin could find himself vying with Isaiah McKenzie and Khalil Shakir for depth opportunities. Austin also offers the ability to return punts.
