ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Eagles have signed cornerback Nolan Carroll to a two-year deal worth $5.2 million plus incentives. Eagles have shown interest in the free agent cornerback Nolan Carroll and the interest has increased over the past few days. Carroll spent last season with the Miami Dolphins.
The 27-year-old cornerback had a great season for the Dolphins last year with a career-high three interceptions, two sacks, 12 passes defended and 47 total tackles. The 6'1", 205 lbs. defensive back was Miami's fifth-round pick out of the University of Maryland in 2010.
You might remember Carroll as the guy who was tripped by New York Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi in December 2010 as he was running down the sidelines.
