Tavon Austin: Everyone has been asking me for money

St. Louis Rams rookie wide receiver Tavon Austin told St.LouisRams.com that everyone has been asking him for money since being drafted a few weeks ago.

“Just people,” Austin said. “Everybody expects a lot of things from you as far as money. Everybody wants to be around you. My phone doesn’t stop ringing now. It feels like they’re counting my bank account now. So that’s probably the hardest thing for me right now, just people.

“I’ve got a lot of cousins now. The whole (city of) Baltimore is my cousin now. We’re going to just try to keep focused and let my mother and all of them handle it.”

It sounds like it’s time for Austin to move himself and family out of his hometown and find new friends.
