Falcons signed G/T Gabe Carimi.
Carimi was waived last week by the Bucs. The first-round bust played just 218 snaps last season, and only 90 after Week 2. Drafted as a tackle, Carimi played exclusively guard in Tampa. The Falcons have one of the league's more unsettled offensive lines, but Carimi isn't terribly likely to crack the 53-man roster. He's never performed at the NFL level. We suppose it's worth noting Carimi will be reuniting with his former line coach in Chicago, Mike Tice. Mon, Feb 17, 2014 04:49:00 PM

Buccaneers waived/released OL Gabe Carimi, RB Michael Hill, DT Derek Landri, and QB Jordan Rodgers.

Per Yahoo's Brian McIntyre, the four moves save a combined $2.07 million in cap space. An ex-Bears first-round pick who knows new Bucs coach Lovie Smith from their time in Chicago, Carimi was a quick cut for Smith, getting the ax just 41 days after Lovie's hiring. Landri is the other notable name here. The Notre Dame alum appeared in nine 2013 games, making nine tackles and one sack.

New Bucs OL Gabe Carimi played right tackle at Tuesday's minicamp session, but coach Greg Schiano believes he has the "flexibility to play somewhere else."

Carimi will undoubtedly see time at guard, but it's certainly notable that he lined up at tackle for his first Bucs practice. Carimi's most likely role will be super-sub, but this is an indication he could push RT Demar Dotson for a starting job. Schiano takes no prisoners.

Buccaneers acquired G/T Gabe Carimi from the Bears in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in 2014.

Bears GM Phil Emery is throwing in the towel on ex-GM Jerry Angelo's final first-round pick after two years of dismal performance. In 2012, Pro Football Focus graded Carimi 73rd among 80 qualifying offensive tackles, and 78th in pass protection. Carimi did handle himself much better in four appearances in right guard. The Bears were going to audition Carimi there full-time in training camp. Instead, he's off to Tampa Bay to compete for a roster spot. The Bucs have one of the better lines in football, so Carimi would do well to earn a sixth-man role.

Bears G/T Gabe Carimi will indeed attend mandatory minicamp this week after training away from the team during OTAs.

Despite Carimi's OTA absence, GM Phil Emery stated in mid-May the team would welcome him back with "open arms." Skipping the mandatory minicamp could've cost Carimi up to $66,150, so there's a financial factor in play. Carimi says he trained in Arizona because it helped his recovery from multiple knee injuries.

The Bears have kept in touch with G/T Gabe Carimi during his offseason workout regimen in Arizona.

Bears GM Phil Emery doesn't seem overly pleased with his disappointing former first-round pick's decision to train away from the team, but does "assume" Carimi will report for next week's mandatory minicamp. "We'd like all our players to be here," Emery acknowledged. "But Gabe made a decision that was best for Gabe, so every individual player has to make those decisions."

The Chicago Tribune reports the Bears don't want to cut G/T Gabe Carimi.

Carimi's $1.016 million base salary is fully guaranteed, so the Bears would rather give him a chance to stick at guard than move on just two years after making him a first-round pick. Carimi has been skipping OTAs to train with former NFLer LeCharles Bentley in Arizona. He won't be competing for a starting job when he makes his way back to the Windy City for minicamp.
Fri, May 24, 2013 12:19:00 PM

Bears G/T Gabe Carimi is working out with former Pro Bowl C LeCharles Bentley in Arizona and is reportedly "light years" better than he was in 2012.

Bentley now runs O-Line Performance Academy after a knee injury ended his career in 2006. Carimi trained with Bentley prior to the 2011 draft. "Gabe can't go back to Chicago and be the player he was," Bentley said. "If he (does), he's failed and I've failed him, to be quite honest, and we've failed one another." Carimi is skipping OTAs, but he'll be in Chicago for mandatory minicamp in June.

Bears GM Phil Emery says G/T Gabe Carimi, who is skipping voluntary OTAs to train in Arizona, will be welcomed back with "open arms."

"Gabe has made a decision that he wants to stay in Arizona and train," Emery said. "We respect that. And he’ll be welcomed with open arms when he comes back." Carimi claims he's training away from the team because it's in his best interests after multiple knee surgeries. Upon return, Carimi will compete for a backup job with Eben Britton, James Brown, and Jonathan Scott.

Bears G/T Gabe Carimi was absent from OTAs for the second straight day Tuesday.

The sessions are technically "voluntary," but it's a bizarre decision from a player who may be on the roster bubble and is without a set position. He's reportedly training in Arizona, meaning he's 1,750 miles away from the new coaching staff he needs to impress. Perhaps Carimi is trying to force the Bears' hand so he can move on to greener pastures.
Tue, May 14, 2013 02:27:00 PM

Bears G/T Gabe Carimi was a no-show for the first day of OTAs on Monday.

OTAs are not mandatory, but there's usually 100 percent participation. Carimi hasn't been with the team since he participated in voluntary minicamp from April 16-18. The 2011 first-rounder informed the club he'd train in Arizona this offseason, which may or may not go over well with new coach Marc Trestman's staff. The Chicago Tribune suggested Monday that Carimi is on the roster bubble.
Mon, May 13, 2013 06:49:00 PM

The Chicago Tribune believes 2011 first-rounder Gabe Carimi is on the Bears' roster bubble.

The Bears appear to have given up on Carimi at tackle, leaving him to compete for reserve guard duties. Sidelined for a majority of his rookie season by a knee injury, Carimi was an absolute train-wreck as a sophomore. Failing to survive final cuts would solidify Carimi as one of the bigger draft busts in recent memory.
Mon, May 13, 2013 12:55:00 PM

Bears coach Marc Trestman hinted Tuesday that OL Gabe Carimi is unlikely to see time at tackle this season.

Carimi took snaps at right tackle in Tuesday's voluntary workout, but the Bears are focusing him at guard. "He was hurt all last year," Trestman said. "So we're going to focus on him competing at the guard position with Matt (Slauson)." It's a tacit admission of failure with a player who was the No. 29 pick as a tackle just two years ago. At 6-foot-7, 316, Carimi will be one of the biggest guards in the league.
Tue, Apr 16, 2013 08:03:00 PM

Bears OL Gabe Carimi is working at three different positions during offseason workouts.

The 2011 first-round bust has yet to look comfortable anywhere on the Bears' offensive line. He'll spend the offseason working at left guard, right guard and right tackle, with his goal being to "secure a starting job at one of them." Head coach Marc Trestman views him as more of a guard than a right tackle. With one of the worst offensive lines in the league, Chicago hopes Carimi can improve in his third season.
Tue, Apr 16, 2013 03:26:00 PM

The Chicago Tribune expects Gabe Carimi to line up at guard this offseason.

Carimi has been a bust since the Bears took him in the first round of the 2011 draft. Jermon Bushrod is the new left tackle, J'Marcus Webb is moving to right tackle and Carimi is left at right guard. Last year's starter at that spot, Lance Louis, has signed with the Dolphins.
