Gabe Carimi signs with Falcons

Published On: Feb 17 2014 10:03:26 PM CST

ATLANTA -

The Atlanta Falcons have signed former Badger offensive lineman Gabe Carimi to a one-year contract.

Carimi, who went to Monona Grove High School before playing his college football at Wisconsin, has been battling knee problems since he was a first round draft pick of the Chicago Bears in 2011.

The Bears traded Carimi to Tampa Bay for a sixth-round draft pick and the Buccaneers released Carimi at the end of the 2013 season.

In Atlanta, he'll be reunited with Mike Tice who was Carimi's offensive line coach with the Bears. Tice is the new offensive line coach in Atlanta.

Tice's son, Nathan, was a quarterback at Wisconsin when Carimi was a Badger. Current Falcons center Peter Konz was also Carimi's teammate at Wisconsin.
