Duron Carter signs extension with Riders

Duron Carter is returning to Riderville.

The enigmatic receiver signed a one-year extension to stay in green and white on Monday.

After signing a one-year deal for 2017 where he made around $130,000 with the Riders, the 26-year-old was set to be a pending CFL free agent in February, but he’s staying with the Riders.

There were NFL opportunities for Carter, who said during the season that the league ‘better be’ watching him in the CFL. He had at least one NFL look and turned down offers from Baltimore and Arizona to stay in Regina.

During the 2017 season, Carter made an impression on the fan base. Spectacular catches and a willingness to part with souvenirs quickly endeared him to the Riders faithful. And more than 20 of them showed up at a Toronto theatre on the Saturday afternoon before the East Final to be treated to a movie by Carter.

He led the Riders in 2017 with 1,043 receiving yards and nine touchdowns (including one on defence) during the regular season, earning him the Riders Most Outstanding Player award.
