Free agent receiver Tavon Austin has signed with the Bills. Austin announced the deal on social media with a photo of him signing the contract.

Austin, 32, played 13 games with three starts with Jacksonville last season. He made 24 receptions for 213 yards and a touchdown.

The Rams made Austin the eighth overall choice in 2013, trading up with the Bills to get him, and he spent five seasons with them.

He then spent two seasons with the Cowboys after a trade from the Rams and was with the Packers in 2020 before the Jaguars in 2021.

Austin caught 244 passes for 2,239 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also has 199 rushing attempts for 1,361 yards and 10 touchdowns and has 1,483 yards and three touchdowns on 190 punt returns.

  1. You can smell the desperation from Buffalo all the way down in Foxborough MA.

  2. Does he not understand when the Jag’s don’t want you your career in the NFL is pretty much over?

  3. Should have come to New England.

    With BB, he would be a true number one.

  4. Bills have like 20 WR’s, at present. I guess they’re throwing the ball. πŸ™‚

  5. Look at all the Pats fans comments. Austin is someone to fill a training camp spot-Buffalo has enough great receivers. Who is the Patriots #1 receiver anyway ?

  6. Let’s all talk like a Free Agent WR signed in June is a significant transaction. Cmon now. Tavon was best using his speed in matchups, but when your north of age 30, the legs start to go. Tough to gage where he is at based on being recently in Jacksonville. Put on some good camp tape and if you are cut, maybe someone gives you a second shot.

  7. Good to see the Pats fans all consumed with Bills threads – Austin is either a camp body or merely a speed guy for returns. Desperation? Nah we did just fine when our WR5 was needed vs you last year. And we all know what happens when we’re full strength – so keep hoping

  8. The only signing that the Bills could make that I would say is skeptical would be if they signed a punter. Sometimes they don’t even need a punter, right?
