The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded defensive tackle Brian Price to the Chicago Bears for a draft pick next year.
Price was a second-round pick (35th overall) out of UCLA by Tampa Bay in 2010. The 6-1, 303-pound Price has started 14 games over two seasons, with 27 tackles (23 solo) and three sacks.
The deal was announced Thursday, and details of the 2013 draft pick were not disclosed. The Bucs also announced that they have signed linebacker Thomas Williams to a two-year contract and waived wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe and defensive back Devin Holland. Williams, entering his third season, spent last year with the Carolina Panthers.

Price played horribly last season, ranking 83rd at his position out of 89 on ProFootballFocus. The Buccaneers have adequate depth with Amobi Akoye and Gary Gibson, two underrated players, so he won’t really be missed much.
He was also having discipline problems. He’s...
The Bears had to address a need along the interior of the defensive line with the departure of Anthony Adams and Amobi Okoye. The loss of Okoye was especially tough given how he emerged in his one season in Chicago.
So the hole left needed to be filled, and the ramshackle of five players competing for the fourth DT spot wasn't very promising. GM Phil Emery heard our concerns...
