Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Brian Price has been going through an extremely difficult time this offseason.  He lost his sister Bridget last week after she was involved in a car wreck.  She left behind two sons, one seven and the other nine years-old.  Price plans on adopting both boys.

Price has been unable to participate in OTA’s and has actually been hospitalized for mental and physical exhaustion.

“There is just no way to explain the grief he’s feeling as a result of this loss,” said agent Charles Price (he’s not related to Brian). “It’s really taken quite a toll on him.”

“He was ready to go with the OTAs (organized team activities) starting up on Tuesday, but between a complete lack of sleep and all that he has been dealing with from this loss, he just couldn’t do it,” Charles Price said.

“You never want to use the term ‘physical exhaustion,’ but there’s really no other way to describe it. He was dehydrated and after dealing with so much, his body just shut down on him.”

We’ll certainly keep Brian and his family in our prayers.

    PRICE BEATS ON HIS TEAM MATE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF. THE BUCS SHOULD SUSPEND HIM FOR TWO GAMES WITHOUT PAY. YOU DONT ATTACK ANYONE AND HIS TEAM MATE NO LESS. EVERYONE HAS GONE THREW A TRAGEDY. HE IS NO DIFFERENT , ITS HOW YOU RESPOND. IF HE’S GONNA USE HER DEATH AS AN EXCUSE, THEN HE BETTER MAN UP. HE’S NOT A LITTLE BOY HES A DAMN GROWN MAN. STOP THE PITY ACT AND WAKE UP.
