Colts signing Duron Carter, Cris Carter's son
The Indianapolis Colts have agreed to terms with wide receiver Duron Carter, the son of Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter.
Carter is a 6-foot-5, 205-pounder who spent the past two seasons with the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football Leauge. He had 124 career receptions for 1,939 yards and 12 touchdowns. In 2014, he was named a CFL All-Star after leading the team with career highs of 75 receptions for 1,030 yards and seven touchdowns.
“His length is what jumps out right off the bat and his ability to make the big play with that length in a variety of ways,” Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said. “He has very good quickness and wiggle for his size and has excellent ability to adjust to the ball in air.”
Carter played one season of collegiate football at Ohio State in 2009 and caught 13 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown. He also returned two punts for 24 yards. Carter attended Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College in 2010 and recorded team highs in receiving yards (690) and touchdowns (10) and tied for second in receptions (44). He then transferred to Alabama in 2011 and Florida Atlantic in 2012, but did not play in any games.
Carter has a history of academic problems.
