Yep, that’s the Buccaneers Gabe Carimi, trying to cut, and whiffing on a Saints linebacker leading to an easy tackle.
Gabe Carimi’s play is rough to watch. Also, @PFF has him graded -0.9 in weeks 16 & 17 when playing only 8 & 5 snaps, respectively.

Needless to say this wasn’t a great season for the first year Buccaneer.
This is just one reason why things did not go as planned for Greg Schiano and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. All is well though, early indications are that we won’t be seeing many sixth round picks going by the wayside under Lovie Smith and Jason Licht.
Then again, it was Smith who had a hand in drafting Carimi and his exile from Chicago had a lot to do with not seeing eye to eye with the new regime.
