Patriots release another highly drafted Wide Receiver

Remember this preseason when Taylor Price had 5 receptions for 105 yards and a TD and we all thought he’d finally be the first Belichick drafted wide out to actually stick? Well not so much. The Pats released Taylor Price today, and given their struggles to stretch the field with the proverbial deep threat when Price had the kind of speed needed to do it, leaves us all a bit disappointed. 

Beyond Deion Branch and David Givens the Patriots have never had success drafting wide receivers. Free Agency is still a viable way to collect receiving talent, but without a wideout under 30 who Tom Brady trusts it’s okay to wonder just what the Pats will do without Branch and Welker, both of whom are free agents after this year.

Why is it so hard for receivers to see the game like Brady does? And how long will it be before the pundits start to question if Brady is too demanding after yet another high round draft pick failed to gain his trust.

Taylor Price seemed like a good kid who worked hard, it’s unfortunate for both him and the Patriots that it didn’t work out. Now the spotlight turns to Tiquan Underwood and gasp, Chad Ochocinco.
