If you were still hoping the Pittsburgh Steelers would land Miami Dolphins unrestricted fee agent cornerback Nolan Carroll, you can now officially stop as Adam Schefter of ESPN is now reporting on Twitter that the Philadelphia Eagles have reached an agreement with him.
Accordng to one report by Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports, Carroll signed a two-year contract worth $5.2 million plus incentives. That’s really cheap, so you have to wonder if the Steelers really had any interest in him at all.
Prior to the start of free agency, the Steelers were one of several teams reported as having interest in Carroll. Whether or not they were just checking the price is unknown and now it doesn’t matter.
Prior to the 2010 NFL Draft, the Steelers brought Carroll up to Pittsburgh for a visit, but passed him up that April several times before the Dolphins finally landed the Maryland product in the fifth-round.
The Eagles are making a lot of noise on Thursday as earlier in the morning they traded for New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles.
