Tuesday March 15th, 2016

The Philadelphia Eagles and cornerback Nolan Carroll have agreed to a one-year deal, the team announced Tuesday.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the base value of Carroll’s contract is $2.36 million, and the deal could be worth as much as $3 million.

Carroll, 29, recorded 57 tackles, two interceptions and 10 pass breakups for the Eagles in 2015. He started in 11 games before sustaining a broken right fibula against the Lions on Thanksgiving. Carroll was later put on injured reserve.

In six years in the NFL, Carroll has registered 223 tackles, seven interceptions and 36 passes defended.  

A fifth round selection by the Dolphins in the 2010 NFL draft out of Maryland, Carroll played his first four NFL seasons in Miami. He signed with the Eagles as a free agent in 2014.
