Again leading the team in tackles (96) and tackles for loss (13.5), he finished second on the team with four sacks and also forced two fumbles, notched a pair of fumble recoveries and recorded an interception. Caroll is a native of Neptune, NJ.
In another Monday roster move, the team announced that defensive lineman David Howard has been placed on reassignment. Following the day's transactions, the Jacksonville roster currently stands at the AFL maximum of 24 active players.
