SHARE Bears top pick has seen the light

Gabe Carimi met with the media on Saturday morning at Halas Hall. The Wisconsin offensive tackle apologized for growing up a Packers fan.

“I’ve sinned and repented, so I’m good now,” he joked. “I’ve seen the light.”

Carimi believes he will fit in perfectly with offensive line coach Mike Tice and the Bears.

“Improvement is the only way to go,” he said. “I have a hunger to try to succeed at whatever I do. That’s the objective; to be the best Bear offensive lineman I can be.”
