Bills Part Way With Former First-Round Pick

The Buffalo Bills moved to 3-1 on the 2022 season with a close victory over the very talented Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, and while the offence didn't look as good as it has in recent times, we can certainly attribute that to the amount of injuries this team is dealing with. It's odd then, that on Wednesday, the Bills parted ways with former star returner and talented receiver Tavon Austin, as the two sides mutually agreed to part ways in order for Austin to seek an opportunity elsewhere.

Austin was drafted No. 8 overall all the way back in 2013, and although he never quite developed into the No. 1 that many expected, he has had a very effective career with five different teams, contributing in the run game, receiving game and as an excellent returner.

Overall, he has racked up 3,400 all purpose yards, to go along with 28 Touchdown's, 15 as a receiver, 10 as a rusher and 3 as a return man, and with age still on his side, there's no reason why he can't find a team to contribute too in 2022. Unfortunately, that won't be the Bills, but with so many injuries happening around the league, Austin should find a home in the near future, as he could be a massive contributor if used correctly.
