It didn't take wide receiver Peerless Price long to catch on with another team. Only a few days after being cut by the Atlanta Falcons, Price has signed a one-year deal to join the Dallas Cowboys. Financial considerations were not disclosed, but reports indicate the contract is worth just over $2 million, including a $500,000 signing bonus. If Price meets certain statistical goals, he could earn an additional $500,000 in incentives.

Peerless Price came to the Falcons from the Buffalo Bills, where he enjoyed his greatest success. He had his finest season 2002 as a member of the Bills, when he caught 94 balls for 1294 yards and nine touchdowns. He will be reunited with his quarterback in Buffalo, new Dallas Cowboys signal-caller Drew Bledsoe.

After the Bills traded Price to Atlanta following the 2002 season, his production fell off dramatically, which led to his release. In his two seasons as a Falcon, he caught 109 passes and scored only six touchdowns. After Atlanta drafted Roddy White in the 2005 NFL Draft, Price began slipping down the depth chart.
