NFC North links: Carimi dealt to Bucs

Chicago Bears

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune: "If Gabe Carimi’s goal was to find a new team by staying away from the Chicago Bears’ voluntary offseason program, consider it mission accomplished."

Bears running back Michael Bush would like to see quarterback JaMarcus Russell get another shot in the NFL.

Detroit Lions

Justin Rogers of MLive.com: "Just watching [Ndamukong] Suh interact with his teammates during recent practices, specifically first-round draft pick Ezekiel Ansah, it's clear the veteran is attempting to step up and be a mentor to some of the younger players on the roster."

Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has posted bond and has been released from an Orange County jail.

Green Bay Packers

The Packers are looking to help cornerback Tramon Williams get back to his playmaking form that was on display during the 2010 season.

Johnny Jolly is relieved to be back practicing with the Packers.

Minnesota Vikings

Count Patrick Reusse of 1500ESPN.com among those who doesn't think parting ways with wide receiver Percy Harvin and cornerback Antoine Winfield was a good move for the Vikings.

Quarterback Christian Ponder's progress will be one story to monitor as the Vikings begin their final OTA session on Monday.
