    Lions’ Price taking early knocks in stride as he attempts difficult position switch

    Allen Park — Changing positions is nothing new for Detroit Lions defensive back Bobby Price, but the transition he’s trying to make now, from safety to cornerback, is the most difficult yet. 

    A high school quarterback, Price was recruited to run track and play wide receiver at Norfolk State, but by the time he arrived at the school, staffing changes altered those plans. Instead, he was asked to try safety. 

    Price quickly found parallels between the quarterback and safety positions, specifically having to make the play calls and get his teammates aligned. The change ended up suiting him so well he started four games as a true freshman and would hold that job the next three seasons. 

    His 6-foot-3, 205-pound frame and top-tier athleticism would earn him a shot at the next level, where he was signed by the Lions as an undrafted free agent in 2020. And after earning a spot and spending much of the year on the team’s practice squad, he netted a promotion to the main roster for the final two games of the season.
