Duron Carter makes Montreal Alouettes’ practice roster

While tryouts with the Vikings and the Saints didn’t land Duron Carter an NFL job, the son of Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter has found a place in the Canadian Football League.

Carter, who went undrafted in April after a collegiate career marked by academic issues and a lack of on-field time, has made the Montreal Alouettes’ nine-player practice roster, the club announced Sunday. A CFL  practice roster is similar to an NFL practice squad.

The 22-year-old Carter caught 13 passes for 176 yards and a TD in 2009 for Ohio State in his lone season of game action on the FBS level. He would later transfer to Alabama and Florida Atlantic but never played for either school.

Another notable name on the Alouettes’ practice roster is running back Tyrell Sutton, who’s had stints with the Packers, Panthers and Seahawks.

    His pops had some personal/maturity issues in his youth too, and he went on to have a Hall of Fame career. I’m sure Duron will be great, he just has to put his nose to the grind stone and work as hard as his father did.

    well, atleast he can say he’s on a actual roster and not being involved in any murders, that’s the good news…

    I’d rather have Tyrrell Sutton.

    He better improve his work ethic because he definitely doesn’t have an education to fall back on. You have be a special kind of stupid to flunk out of OSU and any SEC team if you’re a football player.

    A guy with character issues and ties to the Vikings and the cfl, this guy has all the makings if a future Seahawk.

    Well if you have to play in the CFL it might as well be for the city with the best nightlife and strip clubs!

    I bet he’s glad he dropped out of school to make $20,000/season to be on a CFL practice roster.
