Not so fast on Duron Carter to Minnesota

duron

Former Vikings receiver Cris Carter says his son, Duron, will sign with the Vikings. The Vikings say that Duron merely has been given an opportunity to try out for a roster spot.

Via both Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com and Mike Garafolo of USA Today, the Vikings have yet to offer Duron Carter a job.

While it remains a possibility, the younger Carter first will have to show up and show what he can do. Per Garafolo, the Ravens also have extended Carter an invitation to try out.

At a time when each team can carry 90 guys, having to try out to get an offseason roster spot doesn’t bode well for the player’s long-term career. But at least he’ll get a chance to get a chance to make a team.
