Duron Carter, the son of former Minnesota Vikings' receiver Cris Carter, had his workout with the Vikings yesterday at Winter Park. From all accounts, everything went well, and the most important account comes from Carter the Younger himself, per the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
"It went really well," said Carter, the 23-year-old son of Vikings Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter. "I met everybody and it looked really good. I like Minnesota, I like the facilities, I like the coaches and everything. It seems like things are looking up. I would say Minnesota is probably my front-runner right now."
It's kind of nice to hear him say that, as the Indianapolis Colts had been rumored to be the front-runner for Duron Carter's services for a while now. According to the Star-Tribune, he has already worked out for three teams (Indianapolis, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Kansas City Chiefs), and has workouts scheduled with four other teams (the Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers, and Washington Redskins). He can't sign with any team until 10 February, per NFL rules.
There's at least one former Viking in the team's corner when it comes to getting Duron Carter to Minnesota, as it appears that all three members of "Three Deep" are in agreement on this.
So there you go. Like I mentioned above, Duron Carter can't actually sign with anyone for another month, but it sounds like the odds of him winding up in Minnesota are getting better.
