Gary Lawless of TSN reports that former Colts WR Duron Carter has agreed to a deal with the Montreal Alouettes.
Lawless adds that the deal between Carter and the Alouettes has yet to be signed, but it’s still a “safe bet” that he’s back in Montreal if he returns to CFL.
Herb Zurkowsky adds that a deal between the two parties is “as good as done” and will make him the highest-paid receiver in the CFL.
Carter, 24, signed a three-year contract with the Colts that included no signing bonus back in February of last year. However, he was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason before later being signed to their practice squad.
The Colts elected to not sign him to a future/reserve contract, which would have given him another shot at competing for a roster spot in offseason workouts and training camp.
There’s still a chance that Carter could sign with an NFL team, but it looks like he’s go ahead and setup a contingency option should he not receive an offer.
During the preseason, Carter appeared in four games for the Colts and recorded nine receptions for 126 yards receiving.
