Since they gave up basically nothing for him (if I recall, they moved down 7 spots in the 4th round and 9 spots in the 6th round, and also got another player back along with LenDale) I suppose it's entirely possible that they knew about these things and figured they'd take a shot with seeing if Carroll could get him to shape up. Even if they couldn't, they didn't really lose anything in trying.
