The Dolphins will not extend a tender to Carroo, making him an unrestricted free agent, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
The Dolphins elect to move on from Carroo, who posted two receptions for 94 yards and one touchdown over nine games last season. The 2016 third-round pick never lived up to his big-play potential in Miami, despite occasional flashes, and will work to revitalize his career elsewhere in the league. In his three-year career, Carroo has made 12 catches for 192 yards and one touchdown across 37 games.
Carroo did not bring in his only target during Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Bills. He ends the season with two receptions for 94 yards and a touchdown, and one carry for 14 yards.
Carroo played only one offensive snap during Miami's season finale. The former 2016 third-round pick did not make the Dolphins' active roster until Week 8 of the regular season, and logged the majority of his snaps on special teams during the nine games he was active despite his deep-threat speed. Any hope for future production from Carroo hinges upon him earning the favor of the Dolphins' new coaching staff, which will require him to impress during offseason workouts.
Carroo didn't play any snaps on offense in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Bills.
There was no reward for his 74-yard touchdown the previous week, with Carroo limited to 17 snaps on special teams. There isn't much home for future production after the 2016 third-round pick was buried behind the likes of Brice Butler and Isaiah Ford on Sunday. It's even possible Carroo could lose his roster spot if Danny Amendola (knee) returns in the coming weeks.
Carroo caught one of two targets for a 74-yard touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Colts.
Carroo made the most of his only grab, jumping over a defender to snare a deep ball before coasting into the end zone. He made his first catch of the season in Week 10, and while this splashy play certainly catches the eye, it's a bit premature to consider him as a fantasy option. Carroo will look to build on this effort next Sunday against a tough Bills defense.
Carroo brought in his only target for 20 yards and rushed once for 14 yards during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers.
Carroo received his first offensive snaps (16) of the 2018 season Week 10. With Albert Wilson (hip) on injured reserve, Carroo appears to have successfully carved out a niche role in Miami's passing attack. While it's unlikely that Carroo will achieve fantasy relevance this season, the former third-round pick's usage is worth monitoring in dynasty leagues.
