The Philadelphia Eagles have re-signed free agent corner back Nolan Carroll Jr. to a one-year deal. Carroll Jr. is expected to receive a base salary of $2.36 million. It can be worth as much as $3 million if he reaches incentives.

He came to the Eagles from the Miami Dolphins in March 2014 when he signed a two-year, $5 million deal.

Last season, he went down in the Eagles blowout loss to the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day. He broke his ankle in the game, as he was defending now retired Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

Then, after Carroll Jr. went out with the broken ankle, former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly put rookie Eric Rowe on Johnson, who then dominated him by taking him to school.

The Eagles put Carroll Jr. on injured reserve on Nov. 27, 2015, ending his season.

In the 11 games, he had 41 tackles along with two interceptions — with one being returned for a touchdown and 10 pass deflections.

This was the first time in his career that he played in fewer than 13 games in a season. As a rookie with the Dolphins in 2010, he played in just 13 games.

With Carroll Jr. re-signing, he’ll continue in his right corner role. With the team trading Bryon Maxwell, along with Kiko Alonso, to the Dolphins earlier this off-season, the team is expected to make Rowe the starting left corner, barring the team from signing any starting corner backs.
