For the second time this season, free-agent defensive tackle Brian Price's job search has brought him to Minnesota.

According to multiple reports, Price recently visited with the Vikings, who also hosted him shortly after the Chicago Bears waived him in September.

Price, 23, was a second-round draft pick (35th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft out of UCLA and started 14 games last season with Tampa Bay.

But the Buccaneers' new regime traded him to the Bears in July for a seventh-round draft pick. Price failed to make the roster and hasn't been signed since.

The Baltimore Sun reported the Vikings also recently worked out receivers DeMarco Sampson and Isaiah Williams, who both most recently were with the Arizona Cardinals.
