The Tampa Bay Buccaneers added another piece to their puzzle with the signing of Brian Price. Price signed a four-year contract with the team. The Bucs selected the UCLA defensive tackle with their first pick in the second round (35th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft. He was the second defensive tackle drafted by the Bucs after the team picked Oklahoma’s Gerald McCoy with the third-overall pick.
Price becomes the highest draft pick to sign as there remains a logjam of unsigned first- and second-round picks across the league.
The Bucs now have three unsigned draft picks remaining: McCoy, second-round pick Arrelious Benn and seventh-rounder Cody Grimm. The signing of Grimm is likely simply a matter of time, but Benn and McCoy figure to take longer.
