The Bears have acquired Brian Price from the Buccaneers. The defensive tackle was reportedly traded for a late-round draft pick.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers appear to have orchestrated a trade with the Chicago Bears for the services of defensive tackle Brian Price.

The trade was initially reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN. Schefter reported that the Bears parted with a late-round draft pick for Price. Schefter followed up later, saying that Price was involved in an altercation at training camp with Tampa Bay's first-round draft pick, safety Mark Barron, so the trade may be a form of damage control by the Bucs.

Price also apparently has a hamstring problem, so the Bucs are likely not too sorry to part with him in light of all of this information.

The Buccaneers selected Price in the second round of the 2010 NFL draft. In his two years in the league, he has 27 tackles and three sacks.
