Many Browns pitch in to win Sunday with minor contributions


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer found eight different receivers Sunday against Oakland and six of them caught two or fewer passes.

That group included wideouts Taylor Gabriel, who raced 48 yards with a screen pass midway through the first quarter and finished with two catches for 60 yards, and Miles Austin (2-34), tight end Jim Dray (2-27) and running backs Terrance West (1-10) and Isaiah Crowell (1-8). West also rushed for 11 yards on seven carries while Crowell added a carry for one yard.


Browns WR Miles Austin has ho-hum game in Jacksonville


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Browns wideout Miles Austin faded in the second half Sunday - just like his team. He snagged a 22-yard pass from Brian Hoyer in the second quarter, but managed just one more catch the rest of the game to finish with three for 53 yards.

Austin, who has yet to rack up more than 54 yards in any game this season, will try to make more of an impact when his team welcomes in the Raiders next Sunday.


Bevy of Browns receivers contribute to Week 6 triumph


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Several Browns receivers chipped in with catches to aid in their lopsided victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Among them was Week 5 hero Travis Benjamin, who followed that two-touchdown effort by catching one pass for 31 yards and adding a three-yard run. Tight end Jim Dray did the same through the air while wideout Miles Austin added two receptions for 29 yards. Wide receiver Taylor Gabriel pitched in with a catch for 24 yards.


Browns WR Miles Austin snags two Sunday - but they're biggies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Browns veteran receiver Miles Austin caught just two passes Sunday at Tennessee, but both proved critical.

Austin was blanked until snagging a 31-yarder with 1:56 remaining in the first half to contribute to a touchdown drive. He then split two defenders to grab a 23-yarder to the Titans 17 with two minutes left in the game. That play helped set up the game-winning score.

He will try to continue making big plays next Sunday against the Steelers.


Looking ahead at Week 4 WR waiver wire options


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Jamey Eisenberg considers Jordan Matthews of the Eagles, Brian Quick of the Rams, Allen Robinson of the Jaguars, James Jones of the Raiders and Hakeem Nicks of the Colts the first five receivers you should be targeting on waivers ahead of Week 4.

Additionally, Riley Cooper, Greg Jennings, Jarrett Boykin, Kenny Stills and Miles Austin are mentioned as possibly worth dropping if you need the roster spot right away.  


Miles Austin pitches in with touchdown in Sunday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

He has been consistent the last two games with 12 receptions for 95 yards.

The veteran can rest along with his teammates this week as they are on their bye.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Coach praises Miles Austin for Saturday work


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Hoyer has faith in Browns receiving corps


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer said he's confident in the team's receivers even if Josh Gordon is suspended for the year as expected, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

"Yeah, no doubt," he said. "I look at the guys that we have and I've talked about the guys I throw with but you throw in Nate Burleson, Anthony Armstrong -- I was shocked to know that he didn't play last year,'' said Hoyer. "If you watched him in our spring, he was awesome. Not to mention our tight ends and our skill guys. I feel really confident with who we have and going forward we know that we have what it takes to win games. We know that the guys that are on this team right now are what we're going to have for this season and that's what we're going with, and I feel confident with what we have."

Hoyer's top targets sans Gordon will be tight end Jordan Cameron and receivers Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins, Burleson and Armstrong.

Browns sign receiver Miles Austin


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

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.

Cowboys concerned about hamstring injuries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.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'

Cowboys expected to cut Miles Austin


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

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.

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.
