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.
