“They’re starting,” Carroll said of the talks. “I have a new agent so we’ll see how it goes.”
Carroll did say that he would like to return to Philadelphia next year.
“I’d like to come back, but it’s not just up to me,” Carroll said. “We’ll see what happens.”
It’s not that surprising to hear that the Eagles are speaking to Carroll about a new contract, considering that they tend to be among the more aggressive teams in terms of addressing impending free agents.
Carroll, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2010. After four years in Miami, Carroll signed on with the Eagles in 2014 before returning to Philadelphia on a one-year, $2.36 million contract this past March.
Carroll will be an unrestricted free agent next year.
In 2016, Carroll has appeared in 15 games and recorded 51 tackles, one interception and nine pass defenses for the Eagles. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 91 cornerback out of 119 qualifying players.
