Duron Carter (Cris Carter's son) getting NFL interest

Once upon a time, Duron Carter was a Rivals four-star recruit out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Cris Carter, the talented Class of 2009 wide receiver signed with the same Ohio State program his father played for. But following a freshman season that saw him finish with 13 catches for 176 yards, Carter was ruled academically ineligible prior to the 2010 Rose Bowl. From then on, the talented player with a variety of off-the-field issues became a football nomad. Stops at Coffeyville (Kansas) Community College, Alabama and Florida Atlantic were next for Carter (he never even played a down for the Crimson Tide or Owls).

After going undrafted by the NFL in 2013, the now 6-foot-5, 205-pound wideout hooked up with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. Carter finished with 49 receptions, 990 yards and five touchdowns in 2013 and 75 grabs, 1,030 yards and seven scores this past season. And it was with the CFL club that a number of NFL teams have taken notice.

Carter, who teamed up with six-time Pro Bowler Chad Johnson in Montreal last season, is free to talk to NFL clubs but cannot sign with one until February. Among the teams interested are the Indianapolis Colts and the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.
