Miles Austin gets $300K signing bonus


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) New Browns receiver Miles Austin, who could be their No. 1 option with Josh Gordon facing a potential year-long suspension, received a $300,000 signing bonus, reports NFL.com.

He has a base salary of $1.7 million, and the deal is for $2 million total.


Browns sign receiver Miles Austin


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/15/2014) The Browns announced the signing of veteran receiver Miles Austin on Thursday, adding depth to the team's receiving corps while also fueling speculation that the Browns will be without Josh Gordon this season. 

Austin was a breakout receiver for the Cowboys in 2009 but slowed down soon thereafter mainly due to hamstring issues. He didn't score in 11 games last year but had six touchdowns and 943 yards in 2012. The 6-foot-2 receiver will be 30 when training camp opens. 


Cowboys not closing the door on Miles Austin


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett suggested it's possible the team would re-sign receiver Miles Austin. In March, Dallas designated Austin a post-June 1 cut to free up $5.5 million in cap space.

"The economics of his situation really factored into the decision we made with him, coupled with his injuries," Garrett told the team's website. "We’ll look at the landscape when we get done. Miles is a guy that we have great respect for as a person and as a player."

Austin's return seems doubtful considering Dallas drafted Devin Street and added LaRon Byrd in free agency.


Cowboys part ways with Miles Austin


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) The Cowboys have decided to waive wide receiver Miles Austin, The Dallas Morning News reports Tuesday. According to the report, the team plans to designate him as a post-June 1 cut in order to save $5.5 million, to be used for signing drat picks.

Austin has struggled to stay healthy since signing his massive contract extension in 2010. He finished the 2012 season with just 24 catches for 224 yards and no touchdowns.  


Report: Jets could scoop up Miles Austin


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) If the Cowboys cut receiver Miles Austin as expected, the New York Daily News expects the Jets to be interested in signing him. The paper notes Austin is a Jersey guy who went to Monmouth University in New Jersey.

Cowboys concerned about hamstring injuries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Twelve Cowboys suffered hamstring injuries of varying severity in 2013, reports ESPN.com. The list consisted of Miles Austin, Morris Claiborne, Sean Lee, Justin Durant, Dwayne Harris, Bruce Carter, Danny McCray, Barry Church, Dez Bryant, Lance Dunbar, Gavin Escobar and Terrance Williams.

Coach Jason Garrett is looking at other teams' approaches to find a solution. He might cut back the time players spend on the field early in the offseason, the report said. 

“It is valuable to do the football stuff. We don’t feel like there’s a lot of football stuff right now,” Garrett told the website. “We want to be careful about how much we take away from that. But there’s a couple weeks prior to all that stuff starting. We’ve talked about tweaking the daily schedule and what we’re doing those first couple weeks as we start to lay the foundation for the offseason.”


Miles Austin 'a bit player'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Hamstring injuries have turned Cowboys receiver Miles Austin into "a bit player," reports the Dallas Morning News. The paper expects Dallas to release Austin or ask him to take a massive pay cut.

The Cowboys would have $5.5 million against the cap by cutting Austin after June 1.


Cowboys claim no decision yet on Miles Austin


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones claimed the team has not decided whether to release receiver Miles Austin. The oft-injured Austin, who's scheduled to make $5.5 million in 2014, is fully expected to be cut.

"Great career and he has a big cap number, and we have to take a look at it," Jones told the Dallas Morning News.


Cowboys expected to cut Miles Austin


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/10/2014) The Cowboys will likely part ways with receiver Miles Austin this offseason, reports ESPN. Austin is due $5.5 million in 2014.

The report says "from all the sounds coming from Valley Ranch, the Cowboys want to move on." Austin battled hamstring problems again in 2013, and his salary and the upside for second-year receiver Terrance Williams will likely force Dallas to release him.

The Cowboys will try and replace Austin by drafting a receiver or going after a low-paid veteran in free agency on a short-term deal.


Jerry Jones mum on Miles Austin, DeMarcus Ware


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said it's too early to discuss what the team will decide in regard to wide receiver Miles Austin and defensive end DeMarcus Ware, reports ESPN.com. Most observers expect Dallas to cut Austin and the $5.5 million he's due in 2014, and to restructure Ware's deal.

Report: Cowboys will cut Miles Austin


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/6/2014) Miles Austin will be a June 1 cap casualty according to ESPN. His release would open up $5.5 million in salary cap space, an important figure since the Cowboys expect to be over the cap by roughly $25 million.

Austin caught just 24 passes for 244 yards last season with no touchdowns.  


Cowboys get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rookie receiver Terrance Williams had a 39-yard catch on two targets, receiver Miles Austin caught two of three targets for 22 yards and tight end Gavin Escobar caught a 17-yard touchdown, his second this season.

Receiver Cole Beasley added a 7-yard reception on two targets.


Cowboys pass catchers do little Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Cowboys WR Cole Beasley, WR Miles Austin and FB Tyler Clutts did little Week 16.

Beasley caught two passes for 29 yards. He was targeted just two times. Austin caught one pass for 8 yards. Clutts picked up 4 yards on one target.  


Several pass-catchers contribute to effort for Cowboys


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Rookie wideout Terrance Williams was the best of the pass-catchers making small contributions Sunday for the Cowboys. He had four catches for for 46 yards while Miles Austin continued his disappointing season with two receptions for 35 yards.

Cowboys get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Several Cowboys contributed offensively Week 14 at Chicago. Among them, tight end Gavin Escobar caught both his targets for 32 yards and wideout Miles Austin caught two of four targets for 19 yards. Tight end James Hanna had a 6-yard reception.

They'll play the Packers in Week 15.


Miles Austin fails to capitalize on Week 13 opportunities


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) The Cowboys gave wide receiver Miles Austin plenty of chances to get involved on offense Week 13 vs. Oakland. Unfortunately, the veteran receiver didn't capitalize on his opportunities.

Austin got into the mix early, as he was targeted on the third play of the game, but the third-down pass was swatted down at the line of scrimmage. Austin did record an 18-yard catch on the second drive, but it would be his only reception of the game.

Austin would get three more targets in the first half and finish with a team-high five targets by halftime. Unfortunately, he seemed to lose the trust of quarterback Tony Romo, who wouldn't throw Austin's way at all in the second half.

Austin has been held to one catch in each of his two games since returning from a hamstring injury. The Cowboys are back in action Week 14 at Chicago.


Miles Austin, Dez Bryant active for Thanksgiving Day game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Cowboys wide receivers Miles Austin (hamstring) and Dez Bryant (back) were cleared to play Week 13 vs. Oakland. Both players were listed as probable on the injury report.

Miles Austin probable Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is probable Week 13 against the Raiders.

Austin has been limited by a hamstring injury in recent weeks. He was able to get through practice in full this week. 


Miles Austin's disappearing act holding steady


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Do you recall the computer game and television show Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? Well, a spinoff might be Where in the World Is Miles Austin?

The Cowboys wide receiver has been non-existent for Fantasy owners for quite some time, and that was even before he started having hamstring problems this season. In fact, dating back to last season, Austin has just two touchdowns in his last 16 games. He hasn't surpassed 100 yards in that span either.

Austin made it back onto the field Week 12 at N.Y. Giants after missing a few games, but he totaled just one catch for 17 yards. Can we expect similar numbers Thursday vs. Oakland (Week 13)?

Wide receivers are averaging 25.7 Fantasy points per week against Oakland, which is the fifth-highest average. Wide receivers are also averaging 196.1 receiving yards and have totaled 13 touchdowns in 11 games against Oakland.

No. 2/No. 3 receivers have done well against the Raiders. Players like Eric Decker, Vincent Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, Riley Cooper, Rueben Randle and Justin Hunter have all had big games against Oakland. The potential for Austin to re-emerge Week 13 is there, but it's very tough to trust him in Fantasy right now. He's more of a desperation Fantasy start Week 13.


Miles Austin finally catches a pass


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin didn't play a big role in Week 12 against the Giants Sunday, but he did finally end his streak of games without a reception. Austin caught just one pass for 17 yards on three targets, his first reception since Week 3 against the Rams.  

Austin had been sidelined by a hamstring injury and only appeared in two games without a reception. He will try to build on his first sign of life in months beginning in Week 13 against the Raiders Thursday. 


Miles Austin active for Week 12


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2013) Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is active for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Giants. Sunday will mark his first game action since Week 7. 

Austin's best game this season was Week 1 against the Giants, when he caught 10 passes for 72 yards. He has 15 catches for 125 yards and no touchdowns this year. 


Miles Austin probable against the Giants


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is probable Week 12 against the Giants.

Austin has been dealing with a hamstring injury, but was able to fully participate in practice this week. He has played in just four games due to the injury.


Miles Austin planning to talk to media Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is planning to speak with the media Friday, according to ESPN.

Austin has missed the past three weeks due to a hamstring injury, and has chosen not to speak with the media while he recovers. Austin was able to practice Wednesday, meaning he could return shortly. He's only played four games this season. The Cowboys view Austin as a much-needed weapon down the stretch.


Miles Austin listed as full participant in practice


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin, who has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday. Austin is on track to return Week 12 at N.Y. Giants.

Miles Austin returns at the right time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2013) Cowboys receiver Miles Austin, who hasn't caught a pass since Week 3, appears likely to return from his hamstring injury Week 12 at the Giants. It's a great time for Austin to come back, as he has thrived against the Giants.

Austin caught 10 passes for 72 yards in the season-opening win over New York. He also excelled against the Giants last year, catching 13 balls for 206 yards and a touchdown in two meetings.

Still, it's hard to trust Austin considering what happened the last time he returned from this hamstring problem. In Week 6 against Washington, Austin returned and made zero catches on four targets.

Play Austin this week only if you're desperate.
