H-back. It doesn't sound too scary. It's not like the coach said, "We want you to play nose tackle ." But the guy who plays this modified tight end position for the Rams always seems to end up sandwiched between a linebacker and a safety immediately after catching a pass. Jim Price has paid the price all right. Last year in San Francisco, he caught a pass and took a shot from Dave Waymer's helmet to his lower leg.

The Rams traded tight end Jim Price to the Super Bowl-champion Dallas Cowboys for a sixth-round draft choice Tuesday, nearly a month after Price ended a 51-day contract holdout. "I'm looking forward to playing for Dallas," said Price, a four-year pro from Stanford. "I didn't feel things were going the way I wanted in L.A. They had a good draft pick (Troy Drayton) and they wanted to go with him." Price ended his holdout Sept.

Among the Rams who have to play well in tonight's exhibition finale against the Houston Oilers to secure a spot on the team's final 47-man roster is tight end Jim Price, who went into training camp as the heir apparent to Pete Holohan. Price suffered an injured hamstring early in the exhibition season and hasn't played much. With the recent addition of snapper Mike McDonald to steady the kicking game, Price is a luxury the Rams may not able to afford.

Tight end Jim Price, who has been ineligible to play because he signed his contract late, has been officially added to the roster. Coach Chuck Knox said the team released defensive back Courtney Griffin, who had been promoted to the 53-man roster from the practice squad last Friday. Price was the team's fourth-leading receiver in 1992 with 35 catches for 410 yards.

Jim Price has been making steady progress at the H-back/tight end position and Robinson says the free agent from Stanford is one of the main reasons for the recent surge of offense. The Rams have averaged 406 yards of total offense in the last two games. "Price has a big role now," Robinson said. "He's a big player for us. I don't know how many catches he's got (25 for 294 yards and two touchdowns), but right now he's making some key blocks."

What can Jim Price possibly be thinking? Jim who? The Rams' tight end, the guy who figured to be in for the fight of his life to make the team this year and now is holding out for more money. Even if the Rams give him what he wants--$275,000--he doesn't get it unless the coaches decide to keep him on the roster the entire season. He's currently No. 5 on a team that kept only three tight ends a year ago. What can Jim Price possibly be thinking?

Jim Price was in the same place as most Ram fans Sunday, home in Orange County, parked in front of the television, unable to do anything but watch helplessly as the disaster unfolded in front of him. But Price could have been here. All he had to do was say "yes" to the Rams' contract offer a few weeks ago, and he could have been in uniform, getting pounded with the rest of them. It's hard to imagine a reserve tight end who has averaged 34.

Jim Price's memories of the Rams' last game against the San Francisco 49ers consist very little of his season-high five catches for a season-high 57 yards or of the Rams' second-half surge to pull within punching distance of their bitterest rivals. What the Rams tight end remembers, what everybody remembers, are his two fourth-quarter miscues--one a catchable pass he tipped up that was intercepted, the next a lost fumble--that ended the Rams' hopes of an upset.

Don't worry about it, Anthony Newman told Jim Price as they commiserated at midfield late in the fourth quarter. "Everybody's human," Newman said. "Nobody's perfect," Newman said. "As they say," Price would say in the locker room a half-hour later, "it's always more than one guy's fault when you win or lose a game." Price wasn't buying any of it.
