The trade for Darren Sproles isn’t the only move the Eagles are making on Thursday.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the team has reached agreement on a deal with cornerback Nolan Carroll. Carroll visited with the Bills on Wednesday and there were reports of interest from other teams, but the Eagles were able to beat them out for Carroll’s services.
Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports it is a two-year deal worth $5.2 million with more available in incentives.
Carroll had 47 tackles, two sacks and three interceptions along with some costly coverage breakdowns in 12 starts for the Dolphins last season. He’ll join Bradley Fletcher, Cary Williams and Brandon Boykin on the corner for the Eagles and his presence should increase the competition for spots and depth in Philadelphia.
Carroll joins safety Malcolm Jenkins as prominent new additions to the Eagles secondary since free agency opened on Tuesday.
