JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Oct. 10, 2006) -- Cornerback Ahmad Carroll agreed to terms with the Jacksonville Jaguars, a week after he was waived by the Green Bay Packers.
Carroll was expected to sign a contract, giving the Jaguars depth behind starters Rashean Mathis and Brian Williams, and nickel back Terry Cousin. Backup cornerback Scott Starks sprained an ankle against the New York Jets, but he wasn't expected to miss any games.
The Packers waived Carroll less than 24 hours after his inconsistent performance against Philadelphia on Oct. 2.
A 2004 first-round draft pick by Green Bay, Carroll broke up three passes and had a sack. But he also got burned for two touchdowns, was flagged for pass interference and called for holding.
Jacksonville is expected to place linebacker Mike Peterson on injured reserve to make room for Carroll.
Carroll has 104 tackles, three sacks, three interceptions and 26 passes defended in 34 career games. He also has returned 21 kickoffs for 421 yards.
