Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports that the CFL WR Duron Carter is eliminated the pool of interested NFL teams down to “two finalists.”
- Goessling mentions that negotiations with Carter have been slowed in recent days to some degree as teams have been taking in the Senior Bowl this week.
Carter has reportedly received an offer from the Vikings and the Colts and Panthers were expected to extend him offers as well, so they could be in the mix for the young receiver.
A few weeks ago, Carter mentioned that he had a great meeting with the Vikings, who appeared to be very interested in signing him to a contract.
“It felt like being back home,” Duron Carter, the son of former Vikings WR Chris Carter said, via ESPN.com. “I used to run around that facility when I was little. It still hasn’t changed — I remember some of the cooking people, I still remember where everything is. When I was in for the rookie minicamp, it felt really overwhelming. But this was completely different from the minicamp, from the standpoint of them wanting me and pursuing me. It felt a lot better.”
Carter’s contract with the Montreal Alouettes ended a few months ago and he is now able to make visits with the NFL teams.
Carter, 23, caught 75 passes for 1,030 yards and seven touchdowns to go along with 40 yards rushing.
We’ll have more updates regarding Carter and his NFL options as the news is available.
