I found this a little amusing on his wiki page....
[View Full Quote]During Week 13 of the 2011 NFL season, against the Carolina Panthers, Price shoved Panthers guard Mackenzy Bernadeau well after the end of a third-quarter play in which Cam Newton was sacked for a four-yard loss. Price was penalized for unnecessary roughness. The sack would have forced the Panthers into a 3rd-and-14 situation. However, the resulting 15-yard penalty gave the Panthers a first down, allowing them to complete a touchdown drive that put the game out of reach (the Panthers won 38-19). Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris was so incensed that he banished Price from the sideline for the rest of the game. The move drew comparisons to then San Francisco 49ers coach Mike Singletary banishing Vernon Davis from the sideline after a personal foul in 2008. Price was also reported to have had an altercation with teammate Mark Barron during a team meeting in 2012.
It sounds like he has a little "dog" in him. And the defense could use some of that.
If he can get with a good program, maybe he will have a chance to redeem himself. Or, he could be a camp body.
Oh, and if I were him, I would have b-slapped Mark Barron, too!
