Jeff Fisher: Michael Sam ‘absolutely not’ a distraction for Rams

St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher told ESPN Radio on Wednesday that openly gay rookie linebacker Michael Sam has “absolutely not” been a distraction. Fisher was asked on “Mike and Mike” to respond to Tony Dungy’s comments that the media coverage surrounding Sam would have caused him to pass on drafting him if he were still an NFL coach. “Let’s define distraction...

St. Louis Rams training camp preview: wide receivers

Today’s camp preview remains with the offense, as we run down the candidates competing for the limited spots among the team’s receiving corps. The unit was generally “meh” as a whole last season outside of a few big plays from then-rookie Tavon Austin, but it has been brought back in full to compete with the likes of free agent acquisition Kenny Britt and a bevy of undrafted...

How the Seattle Seahawks stifled Tavon Austin in 2013

With the eighth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams selected the blazing-fast wide receiver and special teams threat Tavon Austin out of West Virginia. Although the Rams would likely have performed better in 2013 than their actual 7-9 record if they didn’t play in the brutally tough NFC West, the fact remains that Austin, individually, underwhelmed. Austin finished...

Tavon Austin says the game is slowing down for him now

Tavon Austin had a decent rookie season but certainly left something to be desired. Even though Austin had quite a few touchdowns in which he showed off his blazing speed, he also looked a bit lost at times and sometimes overthought his routes and the game itself. After dominating football at every level growing up, the game had finally caught up to Austin as he turned pro. As he...

The speedy Tavon Austin was a slow St. Louis Ram in 2013

St. Louis Rams playmaker Tavon Austin said Wednesday that his rookie year was a “pretty big adjustment.” The 23-year-old Austin, who St. Louis selected eighth overall out of West Virginia, caught 40 balls for 418 yards and four touchdowns in 2013. A two-time First-Team All-American, Austin also carried the pigskin nine times for 151 yards and a score. Austin, who can complete...

Tavon Austin: NFL Was A Big Adjustment For Me

Tavon Austin dominated at West Virginia, but had moments as a Rams rookie wide receiver where he was unsure of himself and things going on around him. Austin averaged 18 yards per catch over his final four games of the year, after averaging five or less yards per reception in four of his first eight starts.  The now second year vet told Around The League that the NFL game was...

Twitter Tuesday: Overreacting to Tavon Austin’s “LA agenda”

This morning, the St. Louis Dispatch posted a column about Tavon Austin posing with a bunch of LA Rams fans who want to bring the Rams back to Los Angeles. Obviously, most of us who follow the team are well aware that the Rams are facing some uncertainty regarding their future in St. Louis. The Rams played in LA for three decades before moving to St. Louis. LA hasn’t had an NFL...

WATCH: Tavon Austin flops in epic fashion on fair catch

St Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin had just fair caught a punt when a Seattle Seahawks gunner ran his own teammate into him.  Austin flopped pretty hard, presumably trying to draw a penalty, but the referees didn’t bite.
