The Dallas Cowboys are keeping one of their own by bringing back defensive tackle Brian Price according to a source. This news comes courtesy of Chuck Miketinac of FOX San Antonio.

Price became a Cowboy in early September of last season after spending time with Green Bay, and quickly became part of the defensive tackle rotation. His role increased when Stephen Paea retired, but then Price suffered a season-ending knee injury in November.

Price was an exclusive rights free agent (ERFA), Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas has the lowdown on the contract:

Price gives the Cowboys a 1-tech player for the rotation. Speculation has been that the Cowboys might go after a stud 1-tech in the draft even though Stephen Jones has advised that might not be the case. This kind of signing could keep the Cowboys from drafting one early, instead trying to fill the role later in the draft, or even grab another veteran in the free agent market.

Price showed some promise when he played and is only 23-years-old.
