Colts Agree To Terms With CFL Wide Receiver Duron Carter, Son Of Hall Of Famer Cris Carter

Intro: On Monday, the Colts agreed to terms with wide receiver Duron Carter, the son of Hall of Famer Cris Carter.


INDIANAPOLIS – At the 2015 Pro Bowl, Andrew Luck was throwing passes for Cris Carter's team of all stars.

Come this fall, Luck will be slinging his right arm in the direction of the Hall of Famer's son, Duron.

On Monday night, the Colts agreed to terms with Duron Carter, diving back into the pipeline of the Canadian Football League.

CFL history hasn't produced many receivers who have gone on to succeed at the NFL level, but Carter has the makeup of a pass catcher rarely seen north of the border.

At 6-5 and 205 pounds, Carter gives the Colts a body type at receiver that this franchise isn't used to seeing.

"His length is what jumps out right off the bat and his ability to make the big play with that length in a variety of ways," Colts GM Ryan Grigson said of Carter's film.

"He has very good quickness and wiggle for his size and has excellent ability to adjust to the ball in air." 

Carter heads to Indy after two seasons with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

In 2013, Carter caught 49 passes for 909 yards and five touchdowns. His output grew in 2014 with 75 receptions for 1,030 yards and seven scores.

Reports had the allure of Andrew Luck and the young Colts offense as a major draw to Carter, who worked out for several NFL teams before agreeing to terms with Indianapolis.

Luck was the No. 1 overall pick at this year's Pro Bowl by Cris. In the sixth round of the Pro Bowl draft, "Coach Cris" took T.Y. Hilton with the 11th overall selection.

Carter joins a Colts receiving corps with some young, but proven, talents in Hilton and Donte Moncrief.

Where Carter falls in line with the other Colts pass catchers will be put on hold until he hits the playing field and the futures of Reggie Wayne (retirement/free agent) and Hakeem Nicks (free agent) are decided upon.
