Browns Promote DL Brian Price

After the Browns quadrupled Brian Price‘s practice squad salary, it was only a matter of time before he was brought up to the varsity squad. On Thursday, the Browns did just that by moving Price to the 53-man roster (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport). To make room, fellow defensive lineman Devaroe Lawrence was waived. 

The Cowboys and Packers expressed interest in reuniting with Price recently, prompting the Browns to give him a taxi squad pay bump from $7,600 a week to $37,058 a week. That salary is roughly in line with the league minimum for rostered players, which shows how much he was valued in Cleveland.

Price went undrafted in 2016, but that was due largely to red flags, including the time he threw an official to the ground in college. If not for that incident, Price could have heard his name called early on in the draft. Last year, he appeared in eight games for the Cowboys before being placed on IR.

Rapoport notes that Lawrence has some fans around the league, so it’s possible that he will get claimed off of waivers on Friday afternoon.

If Price is on the 46-man active roster this week, he may get to make his Browns debut against the Ravens on Sunday.

Cowboys, Packers Tried To Sign Brian Price

Recently, the Cowboys and Packers both tried to reunite with defensive tackle Brian Price, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets. To keep him from being poached from their practice squad, the Browns quadrupled his salary, boosting his pay from $7,600 a week to $37,058 a week. 

Price missed the Cowboys’ final cut this year and subsequently hooked on with the Raiders. But, after the Raiders added interior defensive linemen Johnathan Hankins and Clinton McDonald, he was squeezed out. The Browns signed him to the taxi squad last Friday, and calls from two of his former teams – the Cowboys and Packers – soon followed.

The Browns are leaning on recent additions Carl Davis and Devaroe Lawrence as their reserve defensive tackles behind starters Larry Ogunjobi and Trevon Coley. Both have talent, but neither offers the pedigree of Price, who was on track to be a high draft pick in 2016 before he tossed an official to the ground in a fit of rage. The pay bump for Price indicates that he may not be far off from a promotion to Cleveland’s varsity squad.

Raiders Waive DT Brian Price

The Raiders are waiving defensive tackle Brian Price, a source tells Michael Gehlken of the Review Journal (on Twitter). Price was claimed off waivers from the Cowboys just a couple of weeks ago, but he has been displaced by the recent additions of Johnathan Hankins and Clinton McDonald

Price started on Sunday against the Broncos, but saw time on only 17 snaps. With accomplished veterans Hankins and McDonald in the fold, his release does not come as a shock.

Price went undrafted in 2016, but that was due largely to red flags, including the time he threw an official to the ground in college. Last year, he appeared in eight games for the Cowboys before being placed on IR.

The 24-year-old will likely find a new opportunity elsewhere and may be claimed on waivers by Wednesday afternoon.
