Carroll has gotten first team reps while Byron Maxwell, who signed a massive free-agent contract in the offseason, has played on the other side of the defensive formation.
“I’m not putting stock in it at this point, because we’re all getting the same amount of reps,” Carroll said. “Every time I’m out there I’m focusing on my technique no matter where I’m lining up. It’s not about going against the guy across from me, it’s about what I can do every single time and how much I can focus on my technique on every snap.
“We’re out there now and things are going so fast that you’re going to get tired after three or four reps and the next guy is up."
Whether his first-team reps are just for the time being, Carroll plans on fighting for a starting position.
“I want to start again, sure,” Carrol said. “Last year was challenging. I did what they asked me to do and it was something that took some time becoming accustomed to doing. I felt I became a lot more comfortable with later in the year. It was another opportunity to help the team. Same thing now. Whatever they want. I want to be out on the field. Right now it’s me out there with the ones, but everybody is going to get a chance. I just have to take advantage every time I’m out there.”
