Another piece of the Jerry Angelo regime is gone.
And we have a deal: Bears traded OL Gabe Carimi to Tampa Bay for a sixth-round pick in 2014.

Gabe Carimi who struggled with injuries since being drafted in the first round by the Chicago Bears now departs and all the Bears get in the end is a 6th round pick. There in lies the Bears 1st round misses during the Angelo era.
In two seasons with the Bears Carimi started 2 games in 2011 before getting injured against the New Orleans Saints which forced him to miss the remainder of that season. Last year Carimi started 14 out of 16 games but was part of one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL.
The Bears signed nothing but lineman after drafting Kyle Long in the first round including free agents Eben Britton and Matt Slauson. Carimi had two years left on his contract which is guaranteed for just over 1 million a year.
What do you think? Good riddance or should the Bears have receive more than a 6th round pick for the former 1st round pick?
