Per ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Philadelphia Eagles have added former Miami Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll to their roster.
Carroll, who is entering his fifth season, signed a two-year, $5.2 million deal that includes incentives to earn even more. The 6-1, 205 cornerback fits what the Eagles are looking for in their cornerbacks, long playmakers who can tackle. Carroll ranked 18th in tackling efficiency according to Jeff McLane of Philly.com.
In his four years in the league, Carroll has amassed 135 tackles (combined), five interceptions, two QB sacks and a forced fumble and has 23 defended passes on his resume. Three of Nolan’s five interceptions came during last season.
This is another solid, cost-effective, signing by the Philadelphia Eagles. Chip Kelly and co. has already acquired safety Malcom Jenkins to a three-year deal back on opening day.
