After internal discussions about what to do with wide receiver Peerless Price, the Falcons have decided to try to keep him on the roster and restructure his contract. Talks already are underway, and both sides have incentive for finalizing the deal.

Price wants to stay in Atlanta and continue working for the upstart franchise. The Falcons want to keep Price, who has had worked hard this offseason by getting in great shape and catching most every pass thrown his way. Now the two sides need to come to an agreement on what to do with Price's base salary. It seems likely that Price will provide the Falcons with some cap relief for the chance to remain in Atlanta.

Did you watch the first Tennessee game last year? Gaffney dominated that game. He made 2 catches more outstanding than anything I've seen from Peerless Price. Gaffney is exceedingly reliable. He's young. He's not injury-prone and he's been with this offense and David Carr for three years. What you said is ridiculous. Have you even seen Mathis play?

I do agree, though, that Armstrong looks like a heck of a WR also. Of course that's just one more argument that we don't need to waste money on PRice.

People, people, we can't sign every single player that is released from another team.

Amazing isn't it?

Based on last year even the raw numbers are unanimously against Price. As a full time starter he got targetted 106 times, dropped 5 and only managed to haul in 45 for 575 yds gaining 1st downs on just 26% of his receptions. Gaffney as a part time starter turned his 68 targets (with just one drop) into 41 receptions for 632 yds and got 1st downs on 50% of his receptions. Heck even Derick Armstrong had more 1st downs than Price. But hey, there is the added benefit of spending more money.

The article below that you put on here it was dated 6/3/05. If you look at the rumor mill it is dated 6/6/05 (today). Something must have changed in the last 3 days since this article was posted so this article is outdated.

Fans like this are screaming for an organization like the Daniel Snyder run Washington Redskins. Fortunately, our organization doesn't listen to their voices.
Finally, someone else posting the truth. People, the NFL is not like Madden or NFL2K5... Everyone is like, "Ooh, big name player! Sign him! Sign him!" Peerless Price was a good #2 in Buffalo for ONE season. He has been on the decline ever since. Look at the numbers, first and foremost. Jabar had a better season than him last year, and some could make the argument that on many levels so did Derick Armstrong. Peerless Price is OVERRATED, please move on. Let's address some real issues for this team, like Center and Tight End.

As far as Mathis goes...Do you really think a late round pick is going to be a #2 his first year?
while i dont disagree Price might be something we should look into, it would only be if it were maybe a two year contract, so we dont rush mathis if he isnt ready, but word outta camp is that he is impressing the coaches.... Gaff dropping the ball isnt taking the play off, he just made a mental error, and probably wont ever do that again.... armstrong was on our roster, he was a slot receiver, and he might have played some opposite AJ

I am not saying gaff is horrible...IM saying he is a #3 not a #2. Vick runs first and throws second...This is the main reason why PP's numbers are down. He runs better routes and blocks better. He is just a better reciever than Gaff!! Of Course...(with my appologies to DALEMURPHY) that is my UNEDUCATED way of thinking. (I dunno, Ma!! Maybe we otta pert ner git onather reciever for them there Tex-i-cans!!)

Armstrong has great hands...speed is the issue with him.

Mathis is a late round rookie...should he be #2?

Bradford...nuff said!!!

Yes, Atlanta is run first, pass second. But, Price still got TARGETED 106 times and only hauled in 45 for 575. Gaffney was TARGETED 68 times and caught 41 for 632. So, Gaffney had 38 FEWER passes thrown at him, only caught 4 LESS than Price, and still got more yardage...not to mention a 50% First Down ratio. Price is overrated...I would take Gaffney over him any day of the week.

Price succeeded in BUF b/c he was a #2 WR w/ Moulds drawing the doubles. (He also had a pocket passer.) Then ATL offered up the dough, he bolts, and now he's the #1 WR seeing the doubles. All with a running QB and without a viable #2 WR. Bad, bad spot for him, IMO. AJ would take all the defensive pressure off of him that Moulds did (if not more.) I think he'd fit in well here.

If cut, bring him I say. Then when we cut Matt Murphy, he can have his #81.

You also have to remember that Carr is a better passing QB than Vick. Carr last year completed 61% of his passes while Vick only completed 56%. I would love to see Price here as the Texans #2 and keep Gaffney at #3.

Gaffney doesn't have the speed to play on the outside and belongs in the slot.

According to reports, Peerless Price might be forced to retire because of an inoperable retinal condition. The Falcons discovered the problem last season but believed the disorder was treatable.
because of this, Price gets a big from me...

He had a very good season 4 years ago!! Gaffney had a good sophmore year in college that same season!

Someone doesn't get resigned or we miss out on a free agent next year if we sign Price. Do you really want to add Price to an already strong WRing corp at the expense of something else? Don't you understand what's being said? Gaffney caught 41 balls in 68 attempted passes (61% which is excellent considering he averaged about 15 yards per catch). That is a very good rate. If he starts, he would still see single coverage. He is good. He is not what is holding this team back. Not to mention the fact that Price wouldn't be an answer anyway.

I am not going to pass judgement on Mathis until I see what he can do. The highlights from college do peek my interest in him. In a 4-WR set He would probably play on the outside with Gaff and Armstrong playing inside. My ral question about Mathis is the 3-WR set that we seem to use more often.

PP is officially a castoff from another team if he is released. Just like Shelton he has some sort of baggage that is not in the "brochure". I like Gilligans island as much as anyone, but I don't want the "Skipper" playing LT and Gilligan as WR.
