TAMPA, Fla. (AP) â€” The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed second-round draft pick Brian Price to a four-year contract.
The team announced the deal with the defensive tackle from UCLA on Tuesday.
Price, taken 35th overall, is glad the contract is done so he can "concentrate on having a great training camp." He was the Pac-10 defensive player of the year in 2009.
Tampa Bay looked to overhaul its defensive line in the 2010 draft. The Buccaneers used their first-round selection, third overall, to take Oklahoma tackle Gerald McCoy.
McCoy has not yet signed.
Also, Tampa Bay released guard Lee Grimes, who was signed as an undrafted free agent in May.
