The Rap Sheet:
Patriots WR Taylor Price was waiting that breakout game. Now, it will not happen for the Patriots.
The team announced that the third-round receiver from Ohio was released to make room for guard/center Nick McDonald. His once-promising Patriots career ends before it started.
He had just three catches for 41 yards in last year’s finale, and never made an impact this year.

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...

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 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...
The New England Patriots release underachieving wide receiver Taylor Price , a third-round draft pick in 2010.
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…
