Ex Bears Offensive Line Coach Mike Tice is now in Atlanta and he has one of his old charges with him, Gabe Carimi. Carimi was a top pick of the Bears, but it just didn't pan out in Chicago for him. After a short stint in Tampa, Carimi landed in Atlanta with Tice. Some believe that Carimi is a guy with great potential, but slow development of an NFL skill set. Others believe he will not make it. For me it's just hard to imagine one of the top offensive lineman in college with good pro size can not make the grade in the pros.
Atlanta plays Tampa Bay tonight on Thursday Night Football and Carimi should see some playing time. I'd like to see him succeed.
