Jets jettison Ahmad Carroll

The New York Jets have announced that the team has parted ways with cornerback Ahmad Carroll.

A first-round pick of the Packers in 2004, Carroll signed with the Jets as a free agent in 2008.  Last year, he appeared in 16 games with no starts.  This season, he played in six of nine games with no starts. 

Carroll, who made 30 special-teams tackles in 22 games, had been inactive the past two weeks.

If Carroll clears waivers, he’ll become an unrestricted free agent.

    Maybe the Pats can pick him up and milk him for information before next weeks game against the Jets.

    Great. Another ex-Jet for Eric Mangini to bring to Cleveland.

    Who ? Is this worthy of a post, Flo? I can honestly say I’ve never heard of him. Is he great and I don’t know it yet ?

    Browns fans can only hope. Any Jet that gets cut is leaps and bounds better than any starting Brown…

    For all the complaints about Ted Thompson’s draft picks, Ahmad Carrol is Exhibit A on why Mike Sherman was dismissed as a GM for the Packers.

    Agree, JimmySmith. I’m not a TT fan, but this guy is far worse than Harrell ever was. At least Harrell wastes Packers cap space on the sideline. Carrol single handedly lost games for them.

    Let me fill any of you in on who Ahmad Carroll is.
    This is the guy who made you know who Al Harris is. Confused? Let me break it down.
    For the few years that Ahmad started opposite of Al, Ahmad was SOOOO bad that nobody ever threw towards Al’s side of the field. Ahmad was notorious for pass interference calls. He was burned constantly, which made Al’s stat look amazing those few years. Al Harris should be thanking Ahmad for everything he’s done for Al.
    Its always amazed me that people who don’t follow the Packers on a consistant basis always said how great Al Harris was, when he was and is terrible. Al is one of the most overrated players in Packers history.
    You see it now with Charles Woodson on the other side of the field. Nobody picks on Charles. Everyone always goes after Al. And people can say that Al is older and not as fast, but that’s B.S. He’s never been great.
    Facts are facts. Look up his stats.

    I would say that Ahmad Carroll is the worst ever Mike Sherman draft pick, but then again 2004 was also the year that Sherman traded up to the 3rd round to draft that punter that couldn’t punt, and then compounded the mistake by keeping him on the inactive list the entire year. I am glad Sherman is currently rotting in the closest thing to Hell we have here on Earth, a place called Texas.

    Ahmad Carroll = Grabby Smurf, a nickname given to him by his former teammates.

    Carroll was unbelievably bad. A good example of a front office being blinded by a great 40 time.

    I will always hate Mike Sherman…

    The Packers first round pick in 04.
    Brilliant!

    Ahmad “Flagboy” Carroll was a nightmare. LOL. They used to make him practice wearing boxing gloves, so he wouldn’t grab the WRs.
    He got into trouble outside a PIANO bar down south on year. LOL. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    It’s hard to believe Ahmad Carroll actually survived for as long as he did with the Jets. What did they see in him?

    Ahmad Carroll was an unbelievably bad pick for sure, but go easy on Sherman. Every GM has had at least one bad pick. Braatz had Mandarich. Wolf had Reynolds. Thompson had Harrell, and Hawk, and Brohm, and Jackson, and Barbre…
    At least Sherman’s teams were always competitive, and at least he had a winning record. The same can’t be said of the current GM.

    Actually, the only two good picks Sherman ever had was Aaron Kampman and Nick Barnett. The others I think aren’t even in the NFL anymore.
    and out of due respect, but you should go easy on Thompson because he has made great picks too. Rodgers, Matthews, Jennings, Collins, Jolly, Nelson, Finley, Poppinga etc. I admit though some were pretty bad as well.

    I’m not going to say the man was a good GM, but you’ll note that at least six of those are Sherman picks.
    Rodgers, Jennings, Collins, Jolly were great picks for sure. Finley and Matthews look good but still have a bit more to prove. I’m really not sold on Nelson or Poppinga at all personally, but that’s a matter of opinion. Neither one has been a bust by any means, just not anything special.
    With respect, I’ll go easy on Thompson when he stops running my favorite franchise into the ground. His teams have still lost far more than they have won. Unless that should change, my opinion of him won’t either.
