Bears Roster: Chicago Trades For Buccaneers DT Brian Price

The Chicago Bears completed a trade on Thursday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, getting DT Brian Price from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:

Price, a second round draft pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, started 14 games for the Bucs in the 2011 season. He collected 3.0 sacks and 20 tackles on a defensive line that ranked 26th in run prevention and 30th in pass protection according to Football Outsider's Adjusted Line Yards Rankings.

The Bears defensive line, which had a low sack-rate in 2011 (5%, or 5th worst in the NFL), ranked No. 1 in Football Outsider's run prevention rankings, but 29th in pass rushing.
