Some of you may have heard of 23-year old CFL wide receiver Duron Carter, who is the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Cris Carter. Those of you who haven't should start getting to know him because the Kansas City Chiefs are one of the teams rumored to be showing interest in him as he hopes to go from the CFL to the NFL.
Duron Carter update: Will not have Pro Day. Private meetings with teams starting next week. Four teams already setting up meetings.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) December 23, 2014
Tampa Bay, Kansas City, Minnesota and Indianapolis will be first teams Duron Carter meets with, per a source.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) December 23, 2014
Note that he can't sign with an NFL team until February. At least 15 teams at one time were rumored to be interested in the receiver, who teamed up with Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson last season in the CFL.
Carter, 6'5 and 205 pounds, entered the 2013 NFL Draft but was not selected so he went and played in Canada where he turned in two impressive seasons. Because of that and because his father was pretty damn good, he's drawing interest from the NFL. The Chiefs, who are reportedly one of the teams he will meet with, should be a consideration for any receiver because there's not a whole lot of competition there. Then again, looking at this list it would be tough to pass up an opportunity to play with Andrew Luck in Indianapolis.
For some background on Carter, definitely read this piece from Yahoo Sports, which details some of the highs and lows he has gone through.
