The Falcons have signed offensive tackle Gabe Carimi, who has been with two teams already, the Bears and the Buccaneers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Carimi, 6-7, 316 pounds, was drafted by the Bears in the first round (29th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft.

Carimi, who played with Falcons center/right guard Peter Konz at Wisconsin, spent two seasons in Chicago. He played in 18 games and made 16 starts before being traded to Tampa Bay for a sixth-round pick before the 2013 season.

In 2011, he played in two games at right tackle. In 2012, he played right tackle and right guard.

He played line 14 games and made two starts at left guard for the Bucs last season. He played 218 snaps. He had 127 run block snaps and 91 pass block snaps, according to profootballfocus.com.

He had negative grades for overall blocking, passing blocking and run blocking. However, he gave up just one sack, no quarterback hits and just one hurry.
