Cowboys have options in regards to WR Austin

NFP.com reports that the Cowboys do have options in regards to the future of wide out Miles Austin:

Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin caught 81 passes for 1,320 yards with 11 touchdowns in only nine starts last season. What’s refreshing is that Austin isn’t complaining about his contract situation. “No, not worried at all,” Austin told Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com after the Slam Dunk contest in Dallas on Saturday night. “I have all the confidence in the world in the organization and I’m sure everything will be worked out right.” The Cowboys have a few options this offseason for how they can approach Austin’s future with the team, the wideout is set to become a restricted free agent, meaning the Dallas brass can: Apply the franchise tag (which will cost roughly $9.5 million for 2010), work out a long-term deal or place a first and third round tender onAustin (which will land him $3.168 million in 2010).
