Austin hasn't been the same receiver the last two seasons.
Another player whose statistics have diminished significantly is Miles Austin's. Just a few years ago he was putting up numbers comparable to the best receivers in the league.
Lately, Austin’s been plagued with injuries. In spite of playing in every game last year, Austin was nagged by a hamstring injury that he’s been trying to overcome for most of his career.
When he’s been on the field, however, Austin hasn’t been the same guy.
After his breakout season in 2009, the receiver signed a new deal worth $57 million. He followed that up with another 1,000-yard year, but since then it’s gone south quickly.
The last two years he’s only recorded 109 catches and has taken a backseat to rising star Dez Bryant.
Dallas solidified their concern with Austin in this year’s draft too. They used a third-round pick to grab Baylor wide receiver Terrance Williams. Since Williams doesn’t play in the slot position, it seems as if he’s en route to take Austin’s spot as the No. 2.
Like Ratliff, Austin’s recent lack of production and lucrative contract has him labeled as overrated.
