The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they’ve signed second-round draft pick Brian Price.
Price, who was selected 35th overall in the 2010 draft, is the highest-drafted player under contract in the league.
“I’m glad my agent got the deal done, so now I can concentrate on having a great training camp,” Price said in the team’s announcement. “I’m looking forward to contributing to the Buccaneers’ dominant defensive tradition.”
A defensive tackle out of UCLA, Price is likely to start alongside fellow rookie defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, who was selected in the first round, No. 3 overall.
