Cowboys CB Nolan Carroll charged with DWI

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Nolan Carroll was arrested Monday morning on suspicion of driving while intoxicated (DWI), putting him the cross hairs of possible suspension by the NFL.

Officers confirm that Carroll was not involved in a crash but would not release any further details.

Carroll was booked into the Dallas County Jail and posted bond Monday afternoon, according to the Dallas Morning News citing jail spokeswoman Melinda Urbina said.

Carroll signed with the Cowboys in March after spending the previous three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. He received a $3 million signing bonus as part of the deal.

Carroll is entering his eighth National Football League season.

The former foe was expected to help bring along three rookie cornerbacks Dallas' drafted back in April; Colorado's Chidobe Awuize, Michigan's Jourdan Lewis and Florida State's Marquez White. Carroll's signing was followed by the departures of Cowboys cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne.

Carroll was a fifth round selection out of Miami in 2010. He has eight interceptions and 221 tackles over his seven-year career, appearing in 101 games - starting 54 - at cornerback.
