WR Leonte Carroo - Free Agent
|6-0, 211||Born: 1-24-1994||College: Rutgers||Drafted: Round 3, pick 2016|
2018 Week 12 vs IND (2 / 1 / 74 / 1 rec)
To this point, Carroo only had 1 catch this season for 20 yards. All that changed with a single pass from Tannehill. Carroo ran a streak down the left sideline and Tannehill unloaded a 50-yard pass in the air and both Carroo and the defender had to stop and wait for the ball to get there. Carroo went up and over the defender to wrestle the ball away and was able to land on his feet. The defender fell backwards and Carroo was able to sprint the rest of the way to the end zone untouched. It was a 74-yard touchdown and the longest play of the game for either team. It will be interesting to see if there is any chemistry with Tannehill and if he sees an increase in playing time in the coming weeks.
2016 Week 1 vs SEA (2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
The rookie receiver was not a major part of the game plan, but made a statement nevertheless. His second reception was a clutch red zone catch, in which he managed to elude Seahawks All-Star DB Richard Sherman as he broke to the sideline for the ball. The receiving corps is somewhat deep, especially when Devante Parker returns, but if Carroo can climb the depth chart a bit, he would make an intriguing fantasy play.
