CARTER IN, STAMPS OUT WITH ALOUETTES

Montreal – The Montreal Alouettes announced on Monday that Duron Carter will return with the team in 2016, as the 24-year-old international wide receiver signed a new one-year deal with the club.

Carter (6'5", 205 lbs.) made his professional debut with the Alouettes in 2013, cumulating 1,939 receiving yards on 124 catches while scoring 12 majors in two seasons in Montreal. He led the CFL in his rookie season with an impressive average of 18.6 yards per catch. Carter was a member of the Indianapolis Colts practice roster in 2015. He was the Colts' leading receiver following the team's pre-season games with 126 receiving yards on nine receptions, maintaining an average of 14 yards per catch.

"We welcome Duron back to the Alouettes family. His ability to make big plays will add unlimited potential to our new revamped offense," said Alouettes General Manager and Head Coach Jim Popp.

During his last season with the Alouettes in 2014, the Fort Lauderdale, FL native was voted a CFL All-Star with 75 catches good for 1,030 yards while scoring seven touchdowns in only 15 games. He also scored a touchdown on a spectacular 123-yard missed field goal return. He had his best career-outing that season on November 2, when he caught eight passes for 181 yards and one touchdown in a win against the Toronto Argonauts.

In only 11 games in his rookie season in 2013, Carter made 49 catches for gains of 909 yards.

Carter had a deal in place to return to the Als if he came back to the cfl. His departure to the nfl was contingent on that deal. Read the news before you make a ridiculous comment!

Anon 1! why dont you post your name on here you chicken shit Alberta skag. The EE has a piss poor record for 10 years. They have 1 good year and you think you own the right to be disrespectful to a team that's been in 4 grey cups in 9 years. Winning 2
I would be more worried about the state of your Province than dropping juvenile bombs on here.
Remember that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit and the tool of the weak minded

Reginald of Regina......as I understand it, the Regina Roughriders have won 4 Grey Cups.....and have lost a sh*tload of other Grey Cup games in their 100+ yrs in the league....and mostly with a 8 or 9 team league. At least the EE have won 14....Yes 14!! total Grey Cups. Edmonton has been and always will be the City of Champions. WHO deserves more respect?? the Sliders?? I think NOT!!

Not a ridiculous comment whatsoever. Those types of deals no longer exist in the CFL and were phased out about 10 years ago... That was part of the NFL / CFL deal that players could leave to go and try out but would have to return to their team - THAT NO LONGER EXISTS!

Anyway, I return to my original comment - I see this as a failure of our 3 GM's to not be ahead on this one!

Over to you oh 'Ridiculous One'...
