Parameters for Troup?

Posted by Chris Brown on July 21, 2010 – 6:22 am

Contract parameters could be getting clearer between the Bills and second-round pick Torell Troup.

With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signing their second-round pick, DT Brian Price, to a four-year deal late last night, it not only helps in terms of setting some ballpark figures, but he also plays the same position as Troup.

Though he’ll be playing in a 4-3 Price is expected to see most of his playing time at the nose tackle spot in the Bucs ‘D’ with top pick Gerald McCoy expected to man the playmaking three-technique spot (undertackle).

In addition, Price (35th overall) was taken just six draft slots ahead of Troup (41st overall). The only other DTs that came off the board in Troup’s area of the draft came after him with the Raiders taking Lamarr Houston 44th overall and the Giants taking Linval Joseph 46th overall.

We’ll see if the Price contract helps to grease the wheels.
