Former Mountaineer great Tavon Austin is reportedly currently weighing his options as news broke late last week that the Los Angeles Rams will be looking to either trade or release the former 8th overall selection in the 2013 NFL draft.
Reports are indicating that Austin has shown interest in four teams. Three of those teams reside on the east coast and are in close proximity to either Austin’s hometown of Baltimore or his alma mater of West Virginia University.
According to Steelerswire.com Austin has been contacted by the Pittsburgh Steelers as well as the Houston Texans, New York Jets, and the Baltimore Ravens.
Reports have also indicated that Austin has a desire to join a slew of fellow Mountaineers in Philadelphia but has not heard from the Eagles as of yet.
Free agency officially starts at 4 PM today (March 14th).
