    Does anyone who has been a fan of the Tennessee Volunteers for a long time know if he did this in college?

    He is the size of Terry Glenn and is to small to return punts.

    He would get killed

    ya because most punt returners are 6'1 230? of course hes small so is like every punt returner in the game. d hall and d sproles are both small and look how good they are. besides its not like price is getting any time at all anyways.

    He would just be there to field it. He really is not shifty enough to be effective. Think a faster Dedric Ward.

    He's done it some before, but it was years ago, and he wasn't spectacular at it.


    Here are his stats, though the formatting will be all messed up:

    PUNT RETURNS
    Year Team G No FC Yards Avg Lg TD 20+
    1999 Buffalo Bills 16 1 0 16 16.0 16 0 0
    2000 Buffalo Bills 16 5 5 27 5.4 12 0 0
    2001 Buffalo Bills 16 19 8 110 5.8 24 0 2
    2002 Buffalo Bills 16 0 0 0 --- 0 0 0
    2003 Atlanta Falcons 16 0 0 0 --- 0 0 0
    2004 Atlanta Falcons 16 0 0 0 --- 0 0 0
    2005 Dallas Cowboys 2 0 0 0 --- 0 0 0
    TOTAL 98 25 13 153 6.1 24 0 2


    I agree though, if Parcells won't let Newman do it, give Price a try.

    Dboys, if you taped the game check out Peerless, KJ and T on the sidelines kibbutzing.

    Price is a lot bigger than Terry. And not a whole lot shorter than Key.

    I'd guess he is a true 5'11" 1/2.

    He also has that Galloway type muscle mass Bill favors in a return specialist.

    It might come to Bill trying him out..I'd be curious to see how he does.

    Not every returner is small and Hall and Sproles are the minority.
