A dynamic playmaker with the Montreal Alouettes, WR Duron Carter is earning a lot of looks from teams that see his NFL potential.
Several NFL teams are front-runners to sign Canadian Football League star WR Duron Carter, the son of Hall of Fame WR Cris Carter.

Agreements between the NFL and CFL state that free agents from the CFL cannot sign with NFL teams until February 10th, at which point Carter would then be able to sign with any NFL team.
The Indianapolis Colts believe that they are the front-runners, as reported by the Indianapolis Star on Sunday. Stephen Holder, who wrote the article, noted that Carter is interested in working with QB Andrew Luck, who led the NFL in passing yards in 2014. The Colts will likely need a new receiver who could replace Reggie Wayne, who is likely to retire soon, and with No. 3 receiver Hakeem Nicks poised to enter free agency.
Among the other teams that are reportedly interested in Carter are the Minnesota Vikings – who need a No. 1 target for QB Teddy Bridgewater – as well as the Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs.
In two seasons with the Montreal Alouettes, Carter has accumulated 124 receptions for 1,939 receiving yards and 12 TDs with a 15.6 yards/catch average. In a league that is always hungry for more big-play WRs, Carter would probably fit like a glove with any team that has a decent QB.
Carter had numerous off-the-field problems while he was at college, transferring to several different school but only playing a few games at Ohio State back in 2009. He declared for the 2013 NFL draft but was undrafted and unclaimed by NFL teams.
