Nolan Carroll wants to remain an Eagle.
“I would love to stay in Philly,” Carroll said on Comcast SportsNet Wednesday night. “Coming here two years ago, I just fell in love with how the city is and how the fans are, how the organization is. Everybody is welcoming. Everybody loves each other. That’s something you don’t see in a lot of organizations and a lot of people.”
Carroll played in 11 games in his second year with the Eagles, recording 42 total tackles and two interceptions. Carroll said the highlight of his NFL career came in Week 6 when he picked off Eli Manning and brought it back for a touchdown in a 27-7 win over the Giants.
