Update:

The Buffalo Bills announced on Wednesday that they have brought in free agent CB Nolan Carroll and OL Chris Williams for visits.

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.

Bill Williamson of ESPN.com reports that the 49ers are among the teams with interest in Dolphins’ free agent CB Nolan Carroll.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the teams who have inquired about Dolphins’ free agent CB Nolan Carroll in recent days.

Jason La Canfora reports that Dolphins free agent CB Nolan Carroll is generating “a lot of interest” this weekend.

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.

Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Minnesota Viking are expected to “take a strong look” at Dolphins CB Nolan Carroll in free agency this year.

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.
