Colts sign CFL receiver Duron Carter
Tuesday February 3rd, 2015

The Indianapolis Colts have agreed on a contract with CFL receiver Duron Carter, the son of Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter, the team announced Monday

Carter spent the past two seasons with the Montreal Alouettes and was a CFL All-Star in 2014. He caught 75 passes for 1,030 yards and seven touchdowns this season. 

Carter went undrafted in 2013 after a tumultuous college career that saw stops at four different schools. He originally enrolled at Ohio State and caught 13 passes for 179 yards as a true freshman but was suspended because of an academic issue. Carter then transferred to Coffeyville Community College in Kansas, where he played for one season.

Carter transferred to Alabama in 2011 but was sidelined again because of his academics. He left the Crimson Tide after one year and enrolled at Florida Atlantic in 2012. The NCAA denied his application for a hardship waiver at FAU and he was not allowed to play. He then declared for the NFL draft.

After going undrafted, the Minnesota Vikings invited Carter for a tryout but did not sign him. The Vikings also expressed interest in Carter this winter.
