Shortly after the 2013 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings brought in wide receiver Duron Carter, son of former Vikings' great Cris Carter, in for a workout. The team wound up not signing him at the time and, after failing to catch on in the National Football League, Duron headed north of the border and signed with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.
After putting up two very solid seasons in Montreal (where he teamed with former Cincinnati Bengals Chad
Ochocinco Johnson Ochocinco Johnson), apparently he has decided to take another shot at the National Football League, and he's drawing some interest.
Like "roughly fifteen teams" worth of interest.
Carter can start visiting teams now, as the CFL season has officially come to an end. However, he can't sign with an NFL team until February.
The 6'5", 205-pound Carter appears to have gotten past some of the work ethic problems that caused him to have issues in college, and it's not surprising to see him drawing so much interest from teams in what has become a pass-happy NFL. It isn't known at this time if the Minnesota Vikings are one of the teams that are interested. I'm kind of hoping that they are.
Would you want the Minnesota Vikings to give Duron Carter another opportunity?
