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.
