Price hopes to contribute - The Sun Chronicle Online - Sports I haven't seen this posted anywhere and thought it was interesting: "The lockout definitely helped," (Price) said. "I was in my playbook a lot, learning all the audibles and all the different formations, all that. I want to come out here and be ready, to be ready to take over a spot and have no mess-ups, and not have any errors or slipups." There was a lot of talk after the season that players like Price, with a lot riding on their ability to improve significantly from year 1 to year 2, would suffer because of the lockout. It's a good sign that he took the initiative and did his best to learn the playbook. From reports, it seems that his effort is paying off at camp so far.
