Gabe Carimi was born in Cottage Grove Wisconsin and attended Monona Grove High School in Monona, Wisconsin. Carimi played at the University of Wisconsin where he had a stellar career–one that led to the assumption that it would lead to great career in the NFL. He won the Outland Trophy at Wisconsin as the best lineman in the country. The Badgers won a share of the 2010 Big Ten title with Carimi and his excellent class. Selected in the first round of the 2011 draft by the Bears, he suffered a dislocated knee early in the 2011 season, which was followed by two knee surgeries. Carimi was a top pick of the Bears, but it just didn’t pan out for him in Chicago. Carmi moved on to Tampa Bay in 2013 and then to Atlanta in 2014 with former Bear Coach Mike Tice. His injuries ended his career.
