    Gabe Carimi’s decision to skip the Bears’ offseason training activities thus far had led to rampant speculation that the 2011 first-round pick’s time in Chicago may be winding down.

    But Bears general manager Phil Emery said the team would welcome him back with “open arms†during an interview with Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt on SiriusXM NFL Radio late Wednesday.

    “This is a voluntary situation and every player has to make his own decisions,†Emery said. “Gabe has made a decision that he wants to stay in Arizona and train, and we respect that. And he’ll be welcomed with open arms when he comes back.â€

    Carimi has been training in Arizona for the bulk of the offseason, but did participate in the Bears’ voluntary minicamp in April. He said then that his primary focus is getting his leg back to 100 percent after being hobbled last season and sitting out most of his rookie year.

    Carimi was the Bears’ starting right tackle for the first 10 games of last season before being replaced by veteran Jonathan Scott.
