Carroll Returns On One-Year Deal

Posted Mar 15, 2016

On Tuesday, the Eagles made another move to address the cornerback position, re-signing veteran Nolan Carroll to a one-year contract.

Last season before his Thanksgiving Day injury, Nolan Carroll was arguably the Eagles’ best cornerback. Carroll spent the last two seasons with the Eagles, starting all 11 games he played in 2015. This past season, he led the team in pass breakups (15) before being placed on Injured Reserve following Week 12 and also recorded interceptions in back-to-back games, one of which he returned 17 yards for a touchdown against the Giants.

Carroll is another name added to the list of moves the Eagles have made in the secondary over recent weeks. Leodis McKelvin, Ron Brooks and Rodney McLeod were signed last week as free agency began, and Byron Maxwell was traded to Miami in a deal that landed the Eagles with the eighth-overall selection in the upcoming draft. Time will tell how defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz elects to use all of these players at the position and how second-year pro Eric Rowe fits into the puzzle.

The corner spent the first four years of his career with the Dolphins, who drafted him in the fifth round in 2010. In his career, Carroll has 200 tackles, 42 passes defensed and seven interceptions.
