Cowboys release free agent bust Nolan Carroll

Just months after signing him to a three-year, $10 million contract, the Dallas Cowboys have released veteran cornerback Nolan Carroll.

Carroll played in just two games with Dallas, missing three with a concussion. He recorded a grand total of five tackles during that span. With the emergence of rookie Jourdan Lewis at corner, there was really no reason for Dallas to keep Carroll around.

Still, it’s a somewhat shocking move considering the Cowboys handed the veteran $4 million in guaranteed money. This means the team paid him $2 million per game and $800,000 per tackle during his brief stint in Dallas.

Carroll, 30, was coming off a 2016 campaign that saw him start all 16 games en route recording 55 tackles, 10 passes defense and an interception for the Philadelphia Eagles.
