Raiders claim Brian Price, spoiling Cowboys’ plan to re-sign him

The Cowboys had hoped to bring back defensive lineman Brian Price, who they waived Sunday, but the Raiders spoiled their plan.

Oakland claimed Price off waivers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The Raiders waived defensive tackle Treyvon Hester, a seventh-round pick in 2017, in a corresponding move.

The Cowboys had planned to move defensive lineman Datone Jones to injured reserve, replacing him with Price.

Price, 24, signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2016. He was on and off their roster and practice squad as a rookie, playing one game.

He joined the Cowboys as a waiver claim after the Packers cut him out of the preseason. Price played in eight games before going on injured reserve last season, seeing no snaps on defense and 19 on special teams.

  1. Jesus the scraping of the bottom of the barrel continues. We hear a name and think it’s flashy because the Cowboys wanted to bring him back. and then you find out he’s just a practice squad player who had no defensive snaps last year. Not much of a DT

  2. Another Reggie draft pick sent packing.

    I get that its like the 3rd or 4th DT spot and basically a special teamer position so its not a big deal, but at this point it looks its getting petty with Gruden.

  3. GOOO REGGGIEE!! Memba those days Nation? Right here on this board? McKenzie was GOAT GM? What did I tell you? The Raiders are imploding fast. Ten more years of nothing. Book it.

  4. If Price couldn’t make the Packers dline, that means he’s no big loss or gain to any NFL roster.

  5. Gruden is just trying to add depth to our roster and to create some competition. Competition keeps guys honest. Nobody wants to lose their job to a hungrier youngster. These little moves add up. How many stars do you think play for competitive teams? These are the moves that fill out your roster. Our team is lacking talent, period! Reggie did a great job with the cap, but he is terrible at evaluating talent. I was on his side for a while, but that can no longer be disputed, not rationally, not at this juncture.

    Go look at our drafts from 2012 to 2017.

    With the loss of Khalil Mack, only Derek Carr, Gabe Jackson, Amari Cooper, and Karl Joseph remain on the roster as starting caliber players. Even if you allow Conley and Ellis to be considered, and count Mack among the wins, that is still only 7 players. 7 hits on 50 shots is not very good at all. In fact, it means he is successful about 14% of the time. We need to do better. Other guys like Vanderdoes and Calhoun might contribute this year, but I’m not banking on it, and neither is Gruden. I am grateful for the depth, especially since everyone outside of that 2014 draft class basically lives on IR.

    Just have a little faith Raider Nation. I live in Patriot country, and I laugh at almost every New England breaking news update or player acquisition. I listen to sports talk radio every day, and I’m still like “Who the f@$k is that?! Who cares?!”…and yet…they keep winning…and I have to keep listening to their homer nonsense because of it. Gruden is a better coach than we have had since Gruden, and he put together a good coaching staff. I know it looks like a mess right now, but this is the time for faith. We haven’t even stepped on the field yet. We have to give the guy a little time to get it going in the right direction.

    If we had 11 Khalil Macks on defense last year, you think Ken Norton could have figured out how to get a turnover? If we had an all madden offense, could Downing figure out how to score?! Probably not, at least that’s my position. Del Rio was a nice guy, but he did not have the respect of his players, maybe because he never implemented a clear system or culture on or off the field. In the end it cost them all jobs, and it should have.

    I am genuinely thrilled about the promise of some real competence on the sideline. You should be too. We are in desperate need of some clearly defined structure and a culture change after that fiasco. Just give it some time to simmer. That’s how you get all those flavors working together and create something special.

    Keep hope alive. Go Raiders! Peace out.

  6. Good pick up..This is Paul Guenther making these moves by utilizing a player to fit his scheme.. Dallas wanted him back,real bad.. They have a good defense with Rich marrinelli..Great defensive staff the raiders finally have.. Playoffs this yr

  7. Raider fans are totally clueless, continue to go by emotion..Man up and know that last yr at this time espn,fox, CBS sports and NFL Network had us in the SB.

    The Raiders are just trying to get back at Dallas for sending them
    Ryan Switzer.
    —————————————————————————————————————————————————–

    and what did the Cowboys get for sending Switzer to the Raiders after cutting the player they got in return?

    I think Price will now be the youngest player on the Geritol Faiders.

    It just never fails to amaze me how many armchair football experts hate the Raiders and the funny thing is that they do not mention who their favorite team is !
