That didn't take long...

The Atlanta Falcons today announced that they have signed offensive lineman Gabe Carimi.

Carimi, 6-7, 316 pounds, was originally selected by the Chicago Bears in the first round (29th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft. He spent two seasons in Chicago seeing action in 18 games with 16 starts before being traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers prior to the 2013 season. Carimi played in 14 games with three starts last season. He won the Outland trophy as the nation’s top interior lineman and was an All-America selection as a senior at Wisconsin.

The more I read about this move the more I like it, his knee just got to 100% right before the start of last year. I don't think he was in the best shape last year, but should be better this year. Am I saying it's a lock he will be a starter or any value at all, no I'm not. What I am saying is at worst I think he should be a capable backup, better than he was last year, and there is the potential that he could get to a starter level, which would be a steal.

So this signing led to Garrett Reynolds being released saving 1.3 million towards the cap.

If nothing else it's a win already :dance: Reynolds is not an NFL starter.
