Former England rugby union centre Luther Burrell has linked up with Warrington earlier than expected but will have to wait at least a month to make his Super League debut.
The Wolves announced the signing of the Northampton centre on a two-and-a-half-year deal in February and, although he arrived at the club on Wednesday, he will not be free to play for them until his contract begins on July 1.
"It's another handy coup to have," Price said. "It gives us a lot more depth to our backline."
The 31-year-old, who won 15 caps for England, took part in rugby league as a youngster in his native Huddersfield before going on to play professional rugby union with Sale and Northampton.
With full-back Stefan Ratchford and centre Ryan Atkins injured and other outside backs Jake Mamo and Tom Lineham currently suspended, Burrell's arrival could be timely.
But Price insists his new player will not be rushed into action.
"A lot will depend on how he comes physically and mentally," Price said. "They've had a long season in rugby union and he's got to get up to speed with the game. It is a big jump, understanding new plays, new calls, new systems, offensively and defensively. However long that takes, I'm not so sure, time will tell."
