Report: Gabe Carimi will show up for minicamp

According to Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com, Bears offensive lineman Gabe Carimi plans on reporting to next week’s minicamp.

Carimi has been training with former NFL lineman LeCharles Bentley as he continues to work on reshaping his game.

Bears general manager Phil Emery says they’ve kept in contact with Carimi while he’s been working out in Arizona.

“We’ve talked to Gabe and the individual who’s training him. So yes, we’re talking to him,” Emery said. “We’d like all our players to be here, but Gabe made a decision that was best for Gabe so every individual player has to make those decisions. [Organized team activities are] voluntary, and we’re going to respect that and we’re going to respect Gabe in his decisions.”
