The Price is right for Buccaneers

7/21/2010

I have the numbers on the four-year contract Tampa Bay defensive tackle Brian Price signed Monday.

According to a league source, Price, a second-round draft pick, received a $2.72 million signing bonus and the deal averages $1.13 million a season.

Price’s 2010 base salary is $320,000. In 2011, it will jump to $405,000. In 2012, it will be $490,000 and tops out at $575,000 in 2013. The deal also includes a roster bonus of $510,000 for each of the last three years of the deal and a $300,000 workout bonus in 2013.
