Carimi was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on June 9, 2013, for the Buccaneers' 2014 6th round pick.
He credits his karate training with laying a foundation for his later discipline, improving his flexibility, and helping him develop the hand coordination and hand placement he uses as a football player. Seeded 15th in the state in discus as a senior, he placed 5th in the 2006 Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association track and field Division 1 discus championships, at 157 ft 8 in (48.1 m).
Having settled in Chicago just over three years ago, Marder and his wife, observant Jews, are the parents of five children.
The thread uniting his work is helping singles to young married couples find that connection they so deeply desire.
As a result, Jews from all over the territories of the Ottoman Empire as well as Italy and Greece started to settle in the main cities of Egypt, where they thrived.
"We live in a world that is very disconnected and yet everyone is looking for connection -- especially the many young Jews in our community who are not connected or affiliated so they get lost," he said.
Marder grew up in Florida, made aliyah (immigrated to Israel) as a teenager, and studied in both New York and Israel.
Carimi was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the first round, 29th overall pick, of the 2011 NFL Draft.
He began the 2011 season as the Bears' starting right tackle.
