Bucs give Brian Price fresh start in Chicago

By Pat Yasinskas

METAIRIE, La. -- The Saints just announced they’ll move their first training camp practice indoors due to nasty weather in the area.

I’ve got to make my way from the media room to the indoor facility in just a minute. But first, we’ve got a bit of breaking news.

Adam Schefter reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded defensive tackle Brian Price to Chicago for a late-round draft pick. My first instinct is this is a smart move by the Bucs. Price has been a good player, when healthy.

But Price has a history of injuries. He also has been dealing with a personal tragedy. His sister was killed in a car accident this spring and Price spent a big chunk of the offseason away from the team.

Without Price, the Bucs likely will turn to Amobi Okoye as the starter next to Gerald McCoy. Price might be better off getting a fresh start with the Bears.
