The Patriots released wide receiever Taylor Price to make room for offensive lineman Nick McDonald, the team announced on Saturday. Price, a third-year wideout out of Ohio, never really caught on in New England after being a third-round pick in 2010. He played in just three games this season and didn't catch a pass, after playing in just one game -- the season finale -- in 2010. The Patriots had increased expectations for Price coming into the 2011 season, despite being a nonfactor in his rookie season. "He knows the offense better," head coach Bill Belichick said back in August...

Patriots release another highly drafted Wide Receiver Remember...

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...

Former Patriots WR Taylor Price is now with the Jaguars

Earlier today, Patriots coach Bill Belichick was open to the idea of bringing back WR Taylor Price, even if it was on the practice squad. “I wouldn’t rule that out,” he said. Now, he won’t have the chance. Price was claimed on waivers by the Jaguars, a source told me, and so he’ll join that team now. The second-year player from Ohio, a third-round draft pick, received about...

Nick McDonald Thought He'd Watch Colts Game With Friends in Stands, Wound Up Starting at Center for Patriots

FOXBORO, Mass. -- About a month ago, Patriots offensive lineman Nick McDonald got four extra tickets for his friends to visit from out of town and attend Sunday's game against the Colts at Gillette Stadium. "They thought I was going to be sitting with them in the stands," McDonald said Sunday with a laugh. As it turned out, McDonald had a better view of the action,...

Pats cut yet another WR who was drafted high

By Jim Donaldson Taylor Price, a third-round draft choice in 2010 out of Ohio U., has joined Chad Jackson (second round, 2006) and Bethel Johnson (second round, 2003) on the list of disappointing wide receivers drafted in early rounds by the Patriots. Price, who was released Saturday, appeared in only three games in two years with New England, catching just 3 passes for...

The New England Patriots waived wide receiver Taylor Price on Saturday. Price has not had a catch in three games this season and has been bothered recently by a hamstring injury.

Patriots Cut Taylor Price; Vikings Could Have Interest

The Patriots have waived highly-touted wide receiver Taylor Price…and the Vikings could be in line to snap him up. Price, a 2010 3rd-round pick out of Ohio U, was thought to have a bright future with New England but things never worked out for him. He played just one game in 2010 and dressed just three times in 2011. Injury and lack of chemistry with Tom Brady were to blame for...

Jaguars claim Taylor Price

Taylor Price is heading to Jacksonville. Price, the 2010 third-round draft pick who was waived by the Patriots on Saturday, has been claimed by the Jaguars. In two seasons with the Patriots Price played in just four games and caught only three passes, and he was one of the bigger draft disappointments for New England…

Patriots let go of Taylor Price

The Patriots had a strong 2010 draft, finding five starters including Devin McCourty, Rob Gronkowski, and Aaron Hernandez. They swung and missed with their third round pick, though. The Patriots let go of wideout Taylor Price on Saturday to make room for offensive lineman Nick McDonald. Most teams hesitate to drop a high pick so…

Pats-Colts ready to get started -- another Pats WR starts on defense

By Mike McDermottIt's a crisp late October-type day here at Gillette Stadium -- only it happens to be early December. The temperature is a comfortable 51 degrees under cloudy skies. One of the early off-the-field stories is the presence here of casino magnate Steve Wynn, who's been sighted with Patriots owner Robert Kraft. The two are in the early stages of a partnership...
