As the final cutdown approaches, the possiblity of Peerless Price landing in Dallas appeared to be a guardedly optimistic one. Price spent the late moments of last night's game with Jacksonville in Jerry Jones' box. Price will undergo a physical today and he and his agent will meet with team officials to discuss contract parameters. Jerry Jones refused to hint at Price's status last night, terming any speculation "premature."
Price met with the Dolphins earlier Thursday. Had he stayed to watch the Fish play his old team the Falcons, the Cowboys chances may have diminished; Miami is unsettled at QB, with one local paper calling for third stringer Sage Rosenfelds to become the starter, based on his performance last night. Price is leaving Atlanta because he could never get in sync with Michael Vick. I find it hard to believe he would jump to another mismatched passing game.
Price's agent, Tim McGee said Price, "loved" his visit with the Pats on Wednesday, but offered the vague answer that "we hope to get something done by this weekend." McGee neglected to say with which team.
We are likely to find out in the next 48 hours.
