Bears, First Round Pick Gabe Carimi Agree To Four-Year Deal

Carimi’s New Best Friend

Mike Tice is jumping for joy.  Better yet, Jay Cutler is having a field day.

Today, the Bears have signed a pair of 6-foot-3 pass catchers, two key rookie defenders, and now the answer at right tackle.

According to ESPN Chicago, the Bears have signed offensive lineman Gabe Carimi to a four-year contract.  The deal is worth $7 million, with a signing bonus of $3.6 million.

The 29th overall pick from Wisconsin, Carimi is projected as an NFL-ready starter for the next decade:

“I think the kid is a plug-and-play right tackle,” NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock wrote before the draft. “Throw him in there and he’s a starter on Day 1. And he’s a starter for the next 10 years. He’s got a little attitude and there’s something tough about him. He’s a good football player.”

Now all the Bears’ 2011 draft picks have come to terms.
