Rams coach 'pleased' with Tavon Austin's progress


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher is hinting the team is ready to make second-year wide receiver Tavon Austin a more consistent part of the offense in 2014, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"We just have to give him the ball," coach Jeff Fisher said. "Give him the ball in space, because we all know what he can do with it. And so we’re doing some different things. Probably won’t show a whole lot in the preseason, but I’ve very pleased with where he’s at right now."

Even quarterback Sam Bradford said he can see Austin becoming more comfortable with the offense.

"You can see that he’s playing so much faster than he was last year," Bradford said. "Being in the second year of the offense, I think he feels a lot more comfortable with what he’s being asked to do. I don’t think he’s thinking as much, and you really see his speed come out in the way that he’s playing right now."

"I understand the plays, the depth, the routes, the splits and everything," Austin said. "I just feel good that I can make some plays. Definitely, the game's slowed down for me."


Tavon Austin has Rams' offense 'down cold'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer referred to Tavon Austin as an "exciting player" and believes he'll be far more effective in 2014 because it will be his second year in the St. Louis offense. 

"Moving him around to a lot of different spots. You'll see us hand him the ball, doing some different things," Schottenheimer said. "He's playing so much faster just because he knows what we're doing. He has the system down cold. Some of the protections that he struggled with last year ... when they bring people off his face, he knows what to do now and that certainly helps. But, he had a really good OTA."


Game slowed down for Tavon Austin


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"It was a pretty big adjustment for me at first," he added. "The playbook was different. The speed of the game was different. I eventually caught on and the game settled down."

St. Louis expects a lot more in 2014 from Austin, who caught 40 passes and scored six touchdowns as a rookie. One score came on a running play, another on a punt return.


Rams see big jump coming for Tavon Austin


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

“We’re not disappointed in what his production was last year at all," Fisher said. "One of the things that was misleading was he had two or three returns called back -- one against Dallas --and then he got hurt. I think another year in the program, in the offense, OTAs, training camp, you’ll see more production. I think we’ll do a better job of using him now that we know what he’s capable of doing. Kind of looking forward to see him improve from year one to year two."
