Price didn't play in a game this season. He served a two-game suspension, and then dealt with a shoulder injury.
Watts appeared in two games for the Vikings last year after being drafted in the seventh round out of Georgia Tech. He'll give the Vikings six linebackers again, after Gerald Hodges was traded earlier this month.
