Sons of Joe Montana, Cris Carter hoping for NFL shot


Among the 213 prospects who will work out over the next two days at the NFL’s Super Regional Combine at Cowboys Stadium will be the sons of two Hall of Famers.

Nate Montana, son of Joe Montana, and Duron Carter, son of Cris Carter, will be participating, according to Alex Marvez of

Nate Montana was the subject of a great deal of media and fan attention when he started his college career as a Notre Dame quarterback, just like his father. Unfortunately, unlike his father, Nate never had much success at Notre Dame. He ended up transferring to the University of Montana, then transferring once again to West Virginia Wesleyan.

And Duron Carter, like his father, started his college career as a receiver at Ohio State. But Carter transferred to Coffeyville Junior College in Kansas after academic problems at Ohio State, and although he later transferred to Alabama and then transferred one more time to Florida Atlantic, he never played for either of those schools because he had more academic problems.

Both Montana and Carter are extreme long shots to get drafted, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see either of them sign with some team as undrafted free agents. For Montana, Carter and the other 211 prospects at the Super Regional Combine, all they’re hoping for is a chance.
