Cowboys likely to cut Miles Austin


05:46 PM ET 02.10 | The Dallas Cowboys need to get better now more than ever in their past, as the losing seasons continue to infect the prestige of the Cowboys name. The history of the team seems ancient at this point, specifically the winning, and this offseason will be spent looking at ways to upgrade and make the team better. One way that could happen is addition by subtraction, as the Cowboys are expected to cut loose some players that have looked productive in the past. Miles Austin seems to be at the top of that list as the once-promising receiver has fallen out of favor with Dallas and his salary is something Jerry Jones wants back.

That is the problem with getting paid for big seasons get it all up front Miles

Too bad he's so injury prone. Never was the same after that groin injury.

This would be a smart move by Jones, but will he pull the trigger?

See you, Miles.

I see a trip to Pittsburgh in his future.

He never was the same after the chiefs game, his "breakout" hit wonder.

THANK YOU. This guy has been stealing money for years. It's about damn time.

February 10, 2014  10:22 PM ET

YES!!!!!!!!! Finally, dude was the first to rock the New Era Hat and the Nike shirt and sweat combo on the sideline, got tired of his excuses as well as Jerry's fixation on this dude's supposed potential.

Too many injuries led to being out of practice and kept him out of sync with Tony Romo.
Even so the injury history is a viable bargaining chip for a short term low cap-hit deal that Cowboys' should jump on unless they plan on wasting another first round pick on a wide reciever (Should be spent upgrading the defense).
On a side note its already been widely speculated that Austin and the Boys' will part ways come the offseason. Just about any analyst not named Doug Farrar could've told you that by Week 2.

He'll get injured taking the phone call about getting cut.

I think the cap hit last year would have been too great if they cut 'Hammy' Austin. This year it would be on the positive side money wise.

Glass hands Bryant has to improve or HE needs to be gone... and this is just the beginning for Dallas. They need a complete overhaul that even Chip Foose can't handle.

Can they do anything for "Glass Hands" Bryant? Guy complains more than he performs.

He's in the early stages of 'TerrelOwnesitis' meaning teams would trade two 1st rounders and a 3rd for him.
If they let it progress with him though it'll mean Demarco Murray never reaches 1300 yards again, Tony Romo leaves and Jerry Jones will still be gripping the Cowboys till his death 12 years after Tony Romos retirement.
If they trade him they probably get a WR who's a bit worse but more consistent and way less money, possibly a new defensive stud(s) and more cap room to sign their new QB that they'll draft in a couple of years.

Miles produced more when he was out wide. When they moved him to the slot he became average. Plus the injuries kept him off the field.

February 11, 2014  10:55 AM ET

The problem with Austin is that he wasn't getting near the length O's one Mile no less Miles!!!

February 11, 2014  01:14 PM ET

Overpaid & now non productive...add it to the long list of bad GM decisions.

February 12, 2014  01:14 PM ET

That is the problem with getting paid for big seasons get it all up front Miles

If yoou want to take back some of the wasted money, how about starting with Tony Romo!
