Dallas Cowboys cornerback Nolan Carroll was arrested Monday morning on suspicion of DWI, putting him in the cross hairs of possible suspension by the NFL.
Carroll committed a traffic violation about 2:20 a.m. in the 2220 block of McKinney Avenue, according to a Dallas Police Department release.
He was taken to the Dallas County Jail where he posted bond at 2:45 p.m. Monday afternoon and was released.
The arrest and any conviction could result in a suspension of at least two games by the NFL.

“We’re aware of the situation and we are in the process of gathering information,” Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said.
It’s an ominous start to his career with the Cowboys for Carroll, who signed a three-year, $10 million free agent deal in March. He received a $3 million signing bonus as part of the deal.
The 30-year-old defensive back spent the past three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, starting 28 games during that time, including all 16 games in 2016.
He was signed by the Cowboys to help make up for free agent losses of Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne, who signed with the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets, respectively.
