Priceless

Two former high-profile WRs were cut today, Peter Warrick of the Bengals and Peerless Price in Atlanta.

Price reminds me of Alvin Harper, who was Dallas's #2 receiver behind Michael Irvin in the early 1990's. In his fourth season in 1994, Harper caught 33 passes for 821 yards and 8 TDs while leading the league with 24.9 yards per reception. Tampa Bay signed him as a free agent, but he was a major disappointment, with 46 catches for 633 yards (13.8 avg) in 1995 and just 19 catches the following season.

Peerless Price took advantage of Eric Moulds in Buffalo and had a breakout season in 2002 with 94 catches for 1252 yards. But since being traded to Atlanta, his numbers have been trending down:

Yr Tm No Yds Avg TDs
2000 Buf 52 762 14.7 3
2001 Buf 55 895 16.3 7
2002 Buf 94 1252 13.3 9
2003 Atl 64 838 13.1 3
2004 Atl 45 575 12.8 3

After drafting Roddy White in the first round to add to TE Alge Crumpler, the Falcons felt they could get better value by sticking with the younger guys.
