With Tender Hamstring, Price Impresses All

July 31st, 2010

As Joe wrote earlier, Brian Price clearly was getting extra attention from Raheem The Dream at today’s morning practice.

And Joe was watching as defensive line coach Todd Wash leaned on Price a little bit and made him go through an extra rep on a sled drill.

Price later busted up a run play that had Raheem The Dream ready to chest bump, and the rookie looked quick.

It seems the Bucs coaches and players took notice, too, per the recent Twitter musings of eye-RAH! Kaufman, of The Tampa Tribune.

Ira: Rookie DT Brian Price says he still isn’t fully over his hamstring problems, but he certainly impressed teammates and coaches Saturday.

Joe winces at the thought of Price battling a hamstring injury on Aug. 1. The Bucs need him or Gerald McCoy to have a strong season if they want to progress on defense. That’s a tough chore for any rookie, and the hammy won’t make it easier.

    Great to hear!

    U guys have to check out the latest press conference. At about 13:30, Rah makes a hilarious comment about Talib and his reaction to the new cool down tent.

    I dont care what you guys say, I love Rah more and more each day. The man is full of personality and humor. And he will prove he has what it takes to be a good coach this year.

    “Its too cold in there dawg!!” … awesome!

    Price should be no shock to anyone. He was highly rated by our competitors, if you follow the blogs. The Bucs were wise to select him and McCoy.
