Eagles Agree To Sign Nolan Carroll

3:42pm: Garafolo clarifies (via Twitter) that he misunderstood his source this morning, and that Carroll’s deal can be worth up to a maximum of $5.2MM with incentives. The two-year deal is worth $3.65MM on the surface, plus a $900K escalator and incentives in 2015, tweets Tom Pelissero of USA Today.

9:00am: Carroll’s deal with the Eagles will be a two-year pact worth $5.2MM, plus incentives, tweets Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports.

8:50am: A little over an hour after reaching a deal to acquire Darren Sproles, the Eagles have struck again, agreeing to terms on a contract for free agent cornerback Nolan Carroll, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (via Twitter).

Carroll, a four-year veteran, started 22 games at cornerback for the Dolphins over the last two seasons, and had his best year in 2013. In over 800 defensive snaps, Carroll recorded 47 tackles, three interceptions, a pair of sacks, and a slightly positive grade, according to Pro Football Focus (subscription required). While he isn’t the big-name addition some Eagles fans may have been hoping for, Carroll has performed well so far, and could still be on the rise, having just turned 27.

Before agreeing to terms with the Eagles, Carroll met with the Bills, and reportedly drew interest from the Steelers, 49ers, Vikings, and his former team, the Dolphins.
