BIO

A long and athletic corner, Nolan Carroll re-signed with the Eagles on a one-year deal during the 2016 offseason. Carroll registered career highs in tackles (54) and passes defensed (15) in 2015, but was placed on Injured Reserve on 11/27/15 after suffering a broken right ankle on Thanksgiving Day at Det. (11/26/15). A former fifth-round draft choice of Miami in 2010, Carroll emerged as a starter for the Dolphins in 2012 and set career highs in interceptions (three) and sacks (two) in 2013. A native of Green Cove Springs, FL, Carroll was a four-year letterman and team captain at Maryland.

• Claims the biggest influence on his career is his high school coach Ron Riddle. Said Carroll: “He had me in gym class and pretty much convinced my mom to let me play football. I wasn’t allowed to play until my sophomore year of high school. I owe so much to Coach Riddle”

• Was originally recruited to Maryland as a receiver. Said Carroll: “I liked receiver, but I’ve always considered myself a defensive guy. I’ve always had that mindset. I basically begged to play corner”

• One of Carroll’s favorite hobbies is restoring old cars. His most prized possession is a 1972 Cutlass. “I bought it my rookie year and have been working on it ever since,” said Carroll. “It’s almost where I want it to be”
