Eagles Sign Cornerback Nolan Carroll

Buzzing on the third day of free agency, the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to terms with free agent cornerback Nolan Carroll to bolster their secondary corps, according to Adam Schefter and Mike Garafolo.

Carroll, a fifth-year player, bloomed last season with the Miami Dolphins in the shadow of Brent Grimes. He recorded 47 tackles, 2.0 sacks, and three interceptions in 16 games last season.

He is likely to compete with Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams for playing time on the outside, with Brandon Boykin figuring to spend much of his time in the slot. At worst, Carroll will provide depth at cornerback. At best, he can continue his upward trend and emerge as a very solid starter.

The Eagles traded a 5th-rounder to New Orleans for Darren Sproles today.
