Seahawks sign WR Taylor Price

Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE

Following the bummer news that Golden Tate has signed a 5-year, $31M deal with the Detroit Lions, the Seahawks signed WR Taylor Price, formerly of the Jaguars and Patriots. Price was a 3rd round pick by the Patriots out of small school Ohio in the 2010 Draft  - and per Ian Rapoport, was slotted just below Golden Tate on Seattle's board.

It makes sense. Price is a physical freak of nature -- at 6'0, 206, he ran the 40 in 4.40 seconds with a blistering 1.50 10-yard split, had a 37" vert and a 6.82 3-cone drill. He was highly productive in Ohio's run-first offense and set their career receiving record there.

That said, he failed to grasp the complicated Patriots offense - one that is predicated upon option routes and precision timing and route running - and only caught five passes before being waived after one season. He caught on in Jacksonville last year but spent the last two seasons on the injured reserve.

At this point, he's an intriguing athlete but it's hard to tell what to expect from him, considering he's been injured the past two years.
