NFL Free Agency 2014: Eagles Interested in Cornerback Nolan Carroll

According to a report from Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com, the Eagles are interested in free agent cornerback Nolan Carroll. Caroll, 27, has spent four seasons with the Miami Dolphins after being drafted in the 5th round of the 2010 NFL Draft. At 6-1, 205 lbs, Caroll has the size the Eagles prefer in their cornerbacks.

It's curious to see that the Eagles have interest in adding another starting caliber cornerback. Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher were brought in just last offseason to be the starters on the outside. While neither performed spectacularly, both were effective starters. Good enough to "get the job done", at least. One problem is that the Williams and Fletcher hardly figure to be long-term options at the position. The Eagles could stand to add more depth in this area.

Signing Carroll wouldn't appear to be a depth move, however. In his four-year career with the Dolphins, Carroll has appeared in 58 games and started 26. 22 of those 26 starts came over the past two seasons. In 2013, Carroll finished with 2 sacks, 3 interceptions, 12 passes defensed, and 43 tackles. Carroll will be looking for starter's money in free agency.
