Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the Browns increased DT Brian Price‘s salary while on their practice squad from the $7,600 minimum to $37,058 a week after the Cowboys and Packers both tried to sign him this week.
Price has previously played for both the Cowboys and Packers. However, it appears as though Price feels Cleveland is a better opportunity for him, especially after they were willing to quadruple his salary.
Price, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Texas-San Antonio back in 2016. However, he was unfortunately among their roster cuts coming out of the preseason.
The Packers waived Price as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit coming out of the preseason last year and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Cowboys.
Dallas re-signed Price to a two-year, $1.35 million contract back in March, but elected to cut him loose. He was quickly claimed off of waivers by the Raiders, only to be released soon after and eventually sign on to the Browns’ practice squad.
In 2017, Price appeared in eight games for the Cowboy and recorded eight tackles and one pass defense.
