Reports: Brian Price punched Mark Barron in Bucs' meeting

The rumors have come out of multiple corners now and they have been out for a few days.

Apparently during OTA’s in Tampa Bay, defensive tackle Brian Price punched safety Mark Barron, the club’s first-round draft pick from Alabama, during an incident in a meeting room. No one was believed to be seriously injured.

The report was originally made by Charlie Campbell at Walter Football and JoeBucsFan followed up with a similar story. Price, a second-round draft pick from UCLA, has struggled to contribute on the field. Details of exactly what happened are murky. Price has also been troubled with issues off the field. His sister was killed in an automobile accident this offseason and Price is working to adopt her two children.

Hopefully, this is an issue that does not create greater problems in the locker room for the Bucs, who are working to build a new culture under coach Greg Schiano.
