RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Carroll will be expected to compete for the second starting cornerback position across from Byron Maxwell. He received the start in the teamís final game of the season in 2014 and seems in line to start the year as the second starter, at least for the first few games. He started 22 games with Miami in 2012 and 2013.
Carroll will likely make the Philadelphia roster and could push for a significant snap count at one of the outside corner positions.
Carroll is far from a shutdown corner but may go into training camp as the starter but could be backup by the time the season starts if Rishard Marshall and Brent Grimes can show they are recovered from their respective injuries.
Carroll will once again be the backup at RCB this season.
Carroll will backup Sean Smith at right cornerback, could see action in the nickel defense.
The Dolphins fifth-round pick in the 2010 draft will mainly be a special teams player this season. He will also provide the Dolphins with insurance at cornerback should they once again suffer a rash of injuries at the position.
