Former Eagles cornerback is working out for Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins are reportedly working out a former member of the Eagles prior to their game against Philadelphia this week: free agent cornerback Nolan Carroll.

Carroll, who signed a three-year, $10 million deal with Dallas this offseason, was released by the Cowboys last week.

Washington’s interest in Carroll likely stems from the fact that both of their starting cornerbacks are injured. Josh Norman suffered a fractured rib and a lung puncture in Week 4. Bashaud Breeland injured his hamstring against the 49ers in Week 6 and is set to have an MRI today. Washington could potentially be without both Norman and Breeland against Philly in Week 7.

Eagles fans sure won’t mind if Washington trots out Carroll at corner on Monday night. The 30-year-old defensive back is certainly prone to getting beat in coverage, as seen below (click here if you can’t see the video).

We’ll keep you updated if Washington decides to sign Carroll. Maybe they just wanted to work him out to get some extra information on the Eagles. Revenge for Nate Sudfeld.
