Chicago Bears Trade Draft Pick For DT Brian Price
The Chicago Bears have made another move to bolster their roster. Earlier today, they traded their 2013 seventh-round draft pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for DT Brian Price. A 2010 second-round draft pick out of UCLA, Price struggled early in his rookie season with a nagging hamstring injury. He fared much better in his second season with Tampa Bay, starting 14 games, recording 24 tackles and 3 sacks.
Price will have to pass a physical before the trade can become official, but that shouldn’t be a problem since it seems like the hamstring issue is behind him. He has had some personal issues this off-season, most recently a fight with rookie Mark Barron during off-season training. Sadly, Price also lost his sister in a tragic car accident in May, and him and his wife have adopted her children.
Hopefully things turn around for the young man, and nothing better than a fresh start in Chicago. With Amobi Okoye gone, the Chicago Bears needed to replace that void, and they get it in Price. A measly seventh-round pick means Chicago also gets him at a fairly cheap price. Not bad for someone who just may be in the starting lineup come September.
