Taylor Price Released by Patriots

Three catches. Forty-one yards. Countless hours debating his future. One certainty – Taylor Price is no longer a member of the New England Patriots.

First reported by Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe, Taylor Price was released by the Patriots today in order to make room for center Nick McDonald, who was signed from the practice squad.

Former street free-agent Tiquan Underwood was kept instead of Price, showing the lack of progress that Price was evidently making.

Price might have had another few weeks to make an impact if it weren’t for the incredible injury bug that has hit the center position this year. After losing Dan Koppen in the first game of the year, reserves Dan Connolly and Ryan Wendell have also been knicked up as of late.

Price was a former 3rd-round pick of the Patriots in 2010.

Looking forward to adding a WR in the 2012 NFL Draft for the Patriots? Here are our rankings and scouting reports for the receiver position. There are a multitude of top wideouts available, from slot types, possession receivers, and deep threats.

We have the Patriots taking slot/deep-threat Baylor WR Kendall Wright in the 2nd round of our 2012 NFL Mock Draft.

    The guy is always injured and he doesn’t get it. When he’s on the field, he commits penalties. He will e back once the center spot heals. But, he really needs to get it going.

    Matt’s post was both informative and on point but we haven’t shown great success in judging/drafting LB’s recently either {Mayo aside}. How much input does the Evil Genius have in the draft process? A great deal I’m guessing.

    Whatever receiver the Pats decide to pick, they just shouldnt!! They should really pick whatever receiver the Steelers are targeting. They are very good at drafting wr’s and developing them(emmanuel sanders/antonio brown) The pats might be the worst team in the league when it comes to drafting WR’s. Heres a list of WR’s taken around the area Price was taken or after: Eric Decker, emmaneul sanders, jordan shipley, mike williams, jacoby ford, antonio brown, marc mariani…..Scouting Dept- Com’on Mannnnn!

    In what little we saw of Price on field, he seemed impressive.

    He was never really given a shot. Maybe he makes it to practice squad.

      No way he ends up on our PS

      I thought the same thing! I feel like he was never given a chance on the field, not the practice field. BB needs to let these guys play some real time situations, its the only way you can get better as a player

    2nd round order needs to be corrected.

    Comment removed due to language.

    Again the Pats personell department is showing their TOTAL lack of ability to judge recievers. Looks like a couple more years of old worn out recievers that cant stretch the field and take pressure off Welker and Gronk.

    How can we be so consistantly inept at drafing wide recievers. Maybe we should have used this third round pick on a rush linebacker
