Eagles Free Agency Rumors: Cowboys interested in another Philadelphia player

The Cowboys sure do love Philadelphia Eagles players this offseason. Free agent defensive lineman Cedric Thornton will be visiting Dallas, and now the Cowboys are also reportedly interested in cornerback Nolan Carroll.

The Eagles and Carroll reportedly had mutual interest in a return to Philadelphia, but it's clear now that the two sides aren't close.

Carroll was a solid starter for the Eagles last season before getting hurt. The Birds shouldn't be expected to break the bank in order to keep him, though. He'd be a decent addition for Dallas depending on the price.

If Carroll leaves, the Eagles might be in the market for adding another cornerback in the roster through free agency and/or the NFL Draft. The team already signed two cornerbacks this week: Leodis McKelvin and Ron Brooks. McKelvin could potentially be a starter while Brooks is more of a depth player.
