Alouettes’ Sherman says at this point there is no ‘further discussion’ about signing Duron Carter

Duron Carter and the Montreal Alouettes won’t be reuniting.

“We did have discussions with Duron Carter, with him and our staff, seemed like a very nice young man, but at this point, there is no further discussion as far as bringing him back to Montreal,” Als head coach Mike Sherman said in TSN radio in Montreal.

Carter started his career in Montreal and spent parts of three seasons with the Alouettes, he was an East all-star for the Als in 2014. Over 40 games with Montreal, Carter made 185 receptions for 2,877 yards and 17 touchdowns.

The 27-year-old was released by the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday night. During the 2017 season, Carter led the Riders with 1,043 receiving yards and nine touchdowns (including one on defence) during the regular season, earning him the Riders Most Outstanding Player award.

He re-signed for the 2018 season in January due to make $144,000 in hard money throughout the 2018 CFL season. Carter made eight receptions for 111 yards in seven games on the season while recording 13 tackles and an interception return for a touchdown plus one knockdown as a defensive back before Saskatchewan cut him.

The 2017 CFL all-star receiver said four teams reached out initially, but the Lions have since said they won’t be offering a contract for the 2018 season. With Montreal likely out of the mix that leaves the Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats as the last teams standing.
