The deal reportedly is contingent on Carimi passing a physical with the Bucs on Monday. If he does, Carimi would add depth to a Tampa Bay offensive line that has a chance to be very good.
Although Carimi was a bust in Chicago, he could have a chance to compete with Demar Dotson at right tackle. At worst, Carimi could be Tampa Bay’s swing tackle and he also has the ability to play guard.
One thing to keep in mind here is that Carimi was drafted by former Chicago general manager Jerry Angelo. Tampa Bay general manager Mark Dominik and Angelo worked together with the Bucs and maintain a close relationship. I’m sure Dominik talked to Angelo and heard all the positives and negatives on Carimi before making this deal.
