The Vikings, 49ers and Steelers have also been mentioned as a potential option for Carroll who appears to have a better than expected market developing.
Carroll, 27, was taken in the fifth-round by the Dolphins back in 2010. He appeared in all 16 games for Miami and totaled 47 tackles, two sacks and three interceptions.
Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 58 cornerback in the league last season, but below average in terms of coverage ability.
As for Williams, he reportedly has interest from the Houston Texans as well.
Williams, 28, was a former first-round pick of the Chicago Bears. He started all 16 games at left guard for the Rams last season, but it hard to say that he’s going to receive in terms of total money on the open given his struggles over the years.
We previously heard that the Vikings could be a team to watch in regards to Carroll this offseason, so that could be something to keep an eye.
The secondary is in major need of upgrades, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Vikings target multiple defensive backs in the next few weeks.
Carroll could be a value signing for the Vikings. It probably helps to have a guy like Mike Zimmer in place as their head coach given that he has made a career out of getting the most from players.
