Bills signing Tavon Austin

Confused by this signing to be honest. Seems like a waste of both Austin's and the Bills time. Stevenson seemed like a possible cut candidate before this signing. So Austin still seems like a good possibility to be cut as well. But I get it from Austin's view point. He's signing with a contender that doesn't have a returner set in stone. I'm just not sure the Bills would keep him for only return capabilities. He'll need to prove he can do some things on offense too.

I thought we were already set at slot receiver with Crowder, McKenzie, and Shakir.

 

The fact that we're adding veteran depth may mean the Bills don't have high hopes for players at the bottom of the depth chart like Marquez Stevenson and Isaiah Hodgins (who is still yet to have a single catch for the Bills because of injuries)

Weird move.
 

Also, news to Me that Austin is still in the league. A top-10 pick in one of the worst draft classes in recent memory. 

I think he was with Dallas last year

Have we reached the roster limit of 90 yet?

 

Yes, we were at 89 before Austin. The roster is now full.

He had an uphill climb to make the roster before this move IMO. He was drafted extremely low and was brought in strictly to Return. He showed a proclivity to Fumble and did not impress when he didn't. He had some speed, but they NEVER put him on the field at WR. Even when we had guys banged up. That spoke volumes to me.

Yes--year 10 is the typical breakout season for 1st round WRs!

Dorsey wants some speed options

 

So he went with the 32 year old journeyman for this?

In the only two OTAs attended by Bills reporters, Marquez Stevenson has had a lot of drops. I guess Tavon Austin takes over his role as a long shot to make the roster as a return specialist. Just shuffling the cards at the bottom of the deck.
