Bears Roster Cuts: Brian Price May Be Released In Favor Of Amobi Okoye

Defensive tackle Brian Price, who the Chicago Bears acquired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a seventh-round pick earlier this offseason, made Chicago's roster today. But, according to Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune, he may not be on the team for long. McClure reported Friday afternoon that the Bears may release Price and bring back former Bear Amobi Okoye.

Okoye, coincidentally enough, was released by the Buccaneers, who signed him to a one-year, $1.3 million contract this offseason. His preseason, though, was plagued by injury and he missed Tampa's last three preseason games. In 2011, Okoye tallied four sacks, which was the best total of his career. He also added 27 total tackles.
