Jacksonsville cuts ex-Packer Carroll after arrest on weapons and drug charges

The Jacksonville Jaguars released former Packers' corner Ahmad Carroll Monday after he was arrested Saturday on weapons and drug charges.

Police said Carroll was spotted in the middle of a restaurant disturbance in his home town of Atlanta.

Officers said Carroll admitted having a 9mm pistol and a search of his car turned up 11 pills of what apparently was Ecstasy.

He faces charges of carrying a weapon without a license, possessing a firearm in the commission of a felony, and drug possession.

He's free on a $7,000 bond for the moment.

Carroll, 23, was the Packers' first-round draft choice three years ago. He was active for two games for Jacksonville last season and played in one. Carroll had three interceptions in 35 career contests.
