According to Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com, Bears offensive lineman Gabe Carimi didn’t show up for the first day of OTA’s and likely won’t be showing up for the next few days.
Former Chicago Bears first-round draft pick Gabe Carimi was a no-show at Halas Hall on Monday when the team took the field for the first organized team activity of the offseason, according to a source familiar with the situation.
Carimi seems to feel like its better for him to work out in Arizona.
According to multiple sources, Carimi hasn’t been with the team since he participated in the club’s voluntary three-day minicamp held from April 16-18. Following the conclusion of the minicamp, Carimi informed the Bears he planned to skip the second phase of the Bears’ offseason program that included individual on-field work and positional meetings in favor of returning to Arizona to continue his offseason training.
Carimi felt working out in Arizona gave him the best opportunity to return to the field healthy and avoid the knee problems that have plagued him the last two years, a source said.
I hope those workouts in Arizona pay off for Carimi who may end up getting released if he doesn’t improve from last season.

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is in the elite category when it comes to skill sets. He is a dynamic runner and gets plenty of yards via the ground, but what separates Forte from most NFL backs is his ability to catch the football. Forte is the newest version of Marshall Faulk, the former Rams great who could dominate taking a handoff, or running routes. He is the perfect...
Gabe Carimi has been a huge bust with the Chicago Bears. There’s no denying that. The “Jew Bear,” I’m not kidding that is his nickname, has stood out as a horrible offensive lineman; even amidst a really bad O Line. Multiple reports are saying Carimi and the Bears will soon part ways. The Atlanta Falcons seem to be a possible landing spot.

The Bears may not have enough confidence in Jay Cutler to extend his contract, which expires after this season. But Chicago’s new quarterback coach, Matt Cavanaugh, had some high praise for the seventh-year quarterback.
Of course, it’s worth noting that prior to Cavanaugh getting hired by the Bears, he spent four years tutoring Mark Sanchez as the Jets’ quarterback coach. So...

According to NFL.com, the Vikings instead will chose to go with “in-house” players at inside linebacker. The team will move outside linebacker...

Despite several aggressive and haunting beatings provided by Vikings fans to the contrary, those god damn rumors about former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher joining the Minnesota Vikings just won't die.
