The Dallas Cowboys are continuing to strengthen their offense in a bid to make some playoff noise next year. After getting Jason Witten back from retirement and adding to their offensive line, the Cowboys have made a decision on wide receiver Tavon Austin.
According to NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo, the Cowboys have decided to keep Tavon Austin for the 2019 season. Per the report, the Cowboys have already agreed to a deal with him.
The move comes after the Cowboys have already allowed several receivers to walk in free agency. Cole Beasley is off to the Buffalo Bills, while the team declined the option on Terrance Williams.

Austin joined the Cowboys in 2018 after a five-year stint with the Rams, who had drafted him in the first round back in 2013.
His first season in Dallas was severely limited due to injuries, but he still managed to establish himself as a dangerous deep threat in what little time he saw.
Notably, his two catches for 79 yards and a touchdown against the New York Giants proved to be the difference in 20-13 win.
Austin went on to miss nine games in the regular season due to injury, but returned in time for the end of the regular season and the Cowboys’ playoff run.
He had five punt returns for 73 yards in a 24-22 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wildcard Round.
