Packers drop CB Carroll after bad MNF outing

GREEN BAY, Wis. (Oct. 3, 2006) -- A day after two of his errors helped fuel a Philadelphia Eagles victory, former first-round draft pick Ahmad Carroll was released by the Green Bay Packers.

Packers general manager Ted Thompson said the team released the cornerback who was drafted in the first round in 2004.

In the Eagles' 31-9 victory in Philadelphia, Carroll's blown coverage led to a touchdown that put Philadelphia ahead 17-9, and his costly penalty led to another.

Carroll played 34 games in four seasons and started 28 of them. He had 104 tackles, 95 solo, three interceptions, three sacks, 26 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
