GM reflects on big trade

Greg Schiano's policy has been quite clear in his short time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He isn't taking any garbage and is looking for "Buccaneer Men."

The recent trade of DT Brian Price, who was picked in the 2010 NFL draft second round, caught some people off guard, but the move was explained by Mark Dominik. 

"It just didn't work out with Brian,'' Dominik said of the new Chicago Bear. 

"He's had an unfortunate career and an unfortunate personal life, a really tragic personal life. So it's very difficult to think about all the things he's gone through, from losing his sister, to the injuries he's dealt with and the surgeries he's dealt with."

Making the move was needed, and the team feels that it has the depth to rebound. 

 "But at some point we have to go out there and win some football games, and part of the plan for us was to be involved in free agency this offseason and go out and find guys like Amobi Okoye and Wallace Gilberry, who can help out, so his was a position that we have focused on, knowing this day could come," Dominik said. 

"But (the Bears) know Brian is not in the condition he probably wants to be in. I talked to Phil Emery, the Bears' general manager, and we talked about Brian and where he's at. So we'll see." 

Only time will tell if it works out, but this team plans to build through free agency and the draft. Those who aren't all in, can picture themselves out. Price is just another example.
