Dolphins Could Have Interest in Gabe Carimi

Gabe Carimi

It’s been pretty obvious that the Miami Dolphins have a major need for new offensive line talent. The Dolphins set the franchise record for sacks allowed with 58 and were 26th in rushing last year.

Because of that, should the Dolphins have interest in recently-released offensive tackle Gabe Carimi? There are reports that suggest Miami could get things going with Carimi.

Carimi was acquired in a trade last offseason by the Buccaneers when new Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey played a prominent role. Carimi was a bust as a former first-round pick of the Chicago Bears. But just last year Hickey and Tampa Bay believed they could jumpstart his career.

It did not work out so well in Tampa, but Hickey may still believe Carimi’s best football is ahead of him. Carimi played in 14 games for the Buccaneers in 2013, starting three.

It seems sensible for Miami to consider taking on Carimi. He is a low-risk player who won’t cost much, he’s young and plays offensive tackle, which is a major need for the Dolphins.
