As reported by Zach Zaidman, and numerous other NFL sources, the Bears have acquired defensive tackle Brain Price from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for an undisclosed draft pick next season. Price, a former UCLA Bruin, was a 2010 2nd round draft pick of the Bucs. He's listed at 6'1", 303lbs, and seeing as how the Bucs run a similar defense to the Bears the on field transition should be a smooth one.

Last year he started 14 of 15 games and recorded 3 sacks. There were reports of a fight between he and a Buccaneer teammate this off season and he does have a bit of an injury history which you can read about here.
