Duron Carter believes the NFL ‘better be’ watching him play in the CFL.
There was an NFL scout at TD Place for the Eastern semifinal in Ottawa to get a live look at the six-foot-five, 205-pound receiver. But Carter didn’t know there was an NFL personnel man in attendance.
“I would expect teams to be watching. Every game I want to have 200 yards or make some type of spectacular catch because that’s the type of player I feel I am. The NFL watching, I hope so,” Carter said
“They better be.”
The Riders Most Outstanding Player has made NFL evaluators take notice once again. Back in January 2015 the Vikings, Buccaneers, Chiefs, Panthers and Colts met and worked Carter out. While the 49ers, Browns and Titans expressed interest.
Eventually, the son of Pro Football Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter signed with Indy. Carter impressed in training camp but pre-season games got him bumped down to the practice roster for the 2015 season and the Colts didn’t retain him after that year.
“It comes and it goes. An article could come out tomorrow about how I’m such a terrible teammate and all my NFL chances could dwindle away through the media,” Carter said.
Options could be available for Carter in the off-season because he signed a one-year deal with the Riders. No matter what happens Carter knows he wants to keep his pro career going.
“I’m playing football right now, I’m happy,” Carter said, “I love playing football and that’s what I want to continue doing wherever it is.”
