Carey, Ka’Deem


Card: Sage 2014 (68/250), Topps Chrome 2014
Acquired: 2016, Box Breaker, 2018 Walmart Autographed Memorabilia

Ka’Deem Carey really piled up the yards as a Sophomore and Junior for the Arizona Wildcats. An instinctive slasher back, Carey put together 1,929 yards and 23 TDs in 2012, and 1,885 yards and 19 TDs in 2013. After his Junior campaign he declared for the 2014 NFL draft.  The knock on Carey was his size (5’9″, 207) and an average combine showing.  The Bears selected him in the 4th round of the 2014 draft.

The always smiling Ka’Deem Carey is seen here with a very excited look on his face. In his other Sage card issues, he displays a notable sense of humor as he has a blue tongue- probably from eating a snow cone.  The Topps Chrome here is pretty exciting as well. It’s good framing of an action shot, but my complaints about Topps 2014 is that it looked too much like an ornate front grill of a car.

Since joining the Bears, Carey has had near back to back 160 yard seasons. In 2015, Ka’Deem scored his first 3 professional TDs with starter Matt Forte sidelined for the year.  With Forte moving on to the Jets after the season, Carey was expected to help carry the load with Jeremy Langford. He’d be injured in early September of 2017 and cut later in the month. Currently he is a free agent.
