Los Angeles Rams wide-receiver Tavon Austin has signed a contract extension for four years, $42 million. $30 million is guaranteed for the young wide-receiver. The Rams picked up his fifth-year option during offseason, which locks him in for the next six seasons.

He is known to be a very versatile weapon that can line up anywhere on the field, which includes being a punt returner, allowing flexibility for the team.

After being drafted 8th overall in the 2013 draft, things have been somewhat shacky for him. Despite showing good performace, he has only recorded 123 receptions for 1,133 yards and 9 touchdowns. But after drafting Jared Goff as the 1st overall in the 2016 draft, hopefully he can help Austin have a breakout performance in the upcoming seasons.
