James Bluford Price (September 17, 1940 – August 10, 2012) was a professional American football linebacker in the American Football League for the New York Jets and Denver Broncos. He was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the 3rd round (34th overall) of the 1963 NFL Draft. He played college football at the University of Auburn.
As a sophomore, he was named the starter replacing graduated All-American Jackie Burkett, but suffered a dislocated right shoulder and missed 3 games, until returning to play against Georgia Tech. In 1962, he was named third-team All-SEC as a center.
New York JetsEdit
On September 5, 1963, he signed as a free agent with the New York Jets (at the time the New York Titans) and became a starter. On January 1, 1964, he was part of the largest trade ever made in the American Football League, when he was sent along with Dick Guesman, Ed Cooke, Charlie Janerette and Sid Fournet, to the Denver Broncos, in exchange for Gene Prebola, Wahoo McDaniel, Gordy Holz and Bob Zeman.
