Patriots give up on Price, fill roster spot with McDonald

The New England Patriots released disappointing wide receiver Taylor Price on Saturday, according to The Boston Globe.

Price, a third-round selection out of Ohio in the 2010 draft, had no catches while playing only three games this season because of a hamstring injury. He had only three catches for 41 yards last season, when he was a day of the game inactive for 15 of the 16 contests.

To fill Price's roster spot, the Patriots promoted center-guard Nick McDonald from the practice squad, the Globe said.

McDonald, who was signed as undrafted rookie last season by Green Bay but ended up being a day-of-the-game inactive the entire season, was signed by New England after being released by the Packers in September.
