Miles Austin is likely going to be released by the Dallas Cowboys soon and he has shown big time potential in the past, he just can’t stay on the football field because he has busted up hamstrings. When he is on the football field, he has a lot of potential.
Since a lot of fans would keep Danario Alexander around with his injury history, would fans welcome the idea of bringing in Miles Austin as a veteran signing onto the roster?
Austin would be ready for the start of the season, unlike Alexander. There just is no telling how long Austin will last.
When healthy, Austin is a dynamic playmaker and fits the Chargers system well. He has speed and can pick up yards after the catch. He has good height and is a playmaker. WHEN HEALTHY.
If the team decides to bring in Austin, there better be plans on what happens when Austin goes down. With his history, we can’t rely on him to make it through the whole year.
He would just be on the roster for a cheap price that could provide a spark on offense when he is available. I doubt anyone throws a lot of money in his direction, so it would be a cheap way to get some production.
Tom Telesco didn’t shy away from signing Dwight Freeney knowing he has had an injury history. Could he take a chance on another player with a history of injuries?
