The Jacksonville Jaguars today agreed to terms with veteran free agent cornerback Ahmad Carroll, who was released by the Green Bay Packers on Oct. 3. Carroll is expected to sign a contract on Wednesday. The Jaguars are also expected to place linebacker Mike Peterson on injured reserve on Wednesday after suffering a season-ending injury against the New York Jets.
