Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano wants a team of fighters -- but defensive tackle Brian Price and safety Mark Barron took the charge literally when they brawled in a team meeting room during offseason team workouts in June.

"What happens inside our meetings and that stuff, I like to keep amongst the team," said Schiano. "Somehow it got out. I'm not thrilled about that, but I'd rather keep that inside."

Price and Barron haven't crossed paths since the fight, which Schiano confirmed for the first time Thursday. When they report to training camp July 27 -- Barron, Tampa Bay's first-round pick, remained unsigned as other rookies reported to camp this week -- Schiano expects most of his roster to be healthy and happy.

"We all make mistakes," Schiano said. "Be men about it and let's go. ... We have to put our own personal preferences and whatever disagreements we have aside to what's best for the club."

Price was hospitalized for exhaustion following the death of his 33-year-old sister, the third sibling he's lost. Two of Price's prices were shot in gang-related incidents when Price was in high school.

Barron was the seventh overall pick in the draft and projected as a starter at strong safety. Schiano said his job isn't yet in jeopardy but he did not Barron is missing a lot of practice for a rookie "we're counting on."
