Whatever Happened To...


Recommended Posts

Paul Carrington and Josh Mallard? :mellow: If you remember back in 2006 we had both John Abraham and Patrick Kearney get hurt and numerous other injuries on the DL that both Carrington and Mallard got some real playing time and showed good signs. Carrington had 3 sacks and Mallard had 4 sacks which is more than *cough* Jamaal Anderson *cough* has in his career (2.5). I just wonder why they never got more chances. Mallard had chances with the Colts, Broncos and Bengals but Carrington never got a chance anywhere else. :(

I didn't research it, so can't be sure. But thought I heard something about Carrington getting injured pretty badly on whatever team he landed on after the Falcons. That's too bad, too. I thought he showed real promise.

Found this. Looks like he was on the DEN roster, but didn't play much. I couldn't find any mention of an injury anywhere.

Pro

Paul Carrington played for the Broncos during the 2007 season as a free-agent, after originally signing with Atlanta Falcons as a rookie on May 1, 2006. Carrington joined the Broncos midway through the 2007 season on Nov. 6, but was inactive for the remaining eight games of the season.

As a rookie in 2006, he played 15 games, with two starts, for Atlanta, totaling 33 tackles and three sacks (18 yds.), one forced fumble and two passes defended while also posting a pair of special-teams stops. Carrington was inactive for the season opener at Carolina (9/10) before making two tackles in his pro debut vs. Tampa Bay (9/17). He added two tackles vs. Arizona (10/1) before recording five stops, including a sack and a forced fumble vs. Cleveland (11/12). On the last play of the first half, Carrington stripped QB Charlie Frye for a sack, allowing Rod Coleman to recover for the Falcons. Carrington made his first pro start the next week at Baltimore (11/19) and responded with six tackles and a sack. In the third quarter, Carrington dropped QB Steve McNair for a 6-yard loss. He added his third sack of the season at Washington (12/3) when he corralled QB Jason Campbell for a 13-yard loss in the fourth quarter. Two weeks later, he made five tackles and batted down a pass vs. Dallas (12/16). He posted a career-high seven tackles in his second career start vs. Car. (12/24).. He then competed in Atlanta's 2007 training camp before he was waived in its final roster cut-down.

Good info! Thanks!

Now that I think about it, Carrington was like Anderson - tall & slow

And unlike Anderson could actually get to the QB and get sacks. :rolleyes:

sad when Carrington's 1 season trumps Jamaals career

Yep. My main reason for posting this is that because Anderson is still on the team because he's a former 1st round pick and has a big contract. Had he been undrafted like Carrington he would be out of the NFL.
