Alundis Marcell Brice (born May 1, 1971) is a former professional American football cornerback in the National Football League. He played for the Dallas Cowboys, Toronto Argonauts and Saskatchewan Roughriders.
From his left cornerback position he became a dominant player, receiving All-SEC honors two years in a row (1993,1994). He was only the third player in school history to record at least 7 interceptions in a season, which he did both as a junior and as a senior.
At the end of his senior season, he was shot in the chest while breaking up an on-campus altercation, with the bullet nearly hitting his heart. After an 11 day stay in the hospital, he resumed his preparation for the 1995 NFL Draft.
Brice was selected in the fourth round (129th overall) of the 1995 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys, after he dropped because of health concerns. When the team acquired Deion Sanders, Brice was given a BMW to switch jersey numbers so that Sanders could wear his #21. Even though Brice had already stated he had no attachment to the number.
As a rookie he played on special teams and the nickel defense. He started against the Oakland Raiders in place of Larry Brown, who had missed the week because of a family tragedy. In 1996, he was starting in place of Sanders against the Arizona Cardinals, when he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and was placed on the injured reserve list.
During his rehab treatment he suffered a career threatening injury, when his kneecap ruptured (snapping into two pieces) and was lost for the 1997 season. He wasn't re-signed by the Cowboys after the season.
