The Cowboys released WR Peerless Price today, ending his brief and rather anonymous Cowboys career.
Price was signed early in the season after being released by Atlanta. He was inactive for many early games but it was thought he might flourish after third WR Patrick Crayton was injured in the first Giants game.
Price disappointed, displaying a game that was a lesser version for former Cowboys Joey Galloway's; though Price and Crayton had similar yards-per-reception averages (Price averaged 16.0 yards while Crayton averages 15.1) Price's repertoire seemed limited to deep patters and sideline routes. Dallas clearly missed Crayton's ability to work the middle of the field.
The transaction shows that Crayton is fully recovered from his nasty sprain.
