Price, who caught just six passes for 96 yards, worked mainly as a punt returner.

Price was inactive for four of the Cowboys' first six games.

Price underachieved in Atlanta after the Falcons acquired him in a 2003 trade with the Buffalo Bills in which they surrendered a first-round draft pick, and then awarded him a contract that included a $10 million signing bonus.

His best season came in 2002, with Buffalo, when he posted 94 catches for 1,252 yards and nine touchdowns.
