(Vancouver) The BC Lions Football Club announced that free agent receiver Duron Carter has signed a contract with the team for the 2019 season.

Players of Durons remarkable ability are what make our league special and hes going to be a very big piece of our offence in 2019,” said GM Ed Hervey. “We had a lot of interest in him last year when he became available during the season and its great to finally get this deal done.”

Carter (6’5”, 205) was most recently a member of the Toronto Argonauts where he appeared in eight games in 2018 recording 10 receptions for 119 yards and a touchdown. He also spent seven games on the roster of the Saskatchewan Roughriders last season and 25 games overall dating back to 2017.

The athletic and gifted receiver is a two-time CFL All-Star (’14, ’17) and originally began his career with Montreal in 2013. Through five seasons and 73 career games, the Florida native has racked-up 4,150 yards on 276 receptions with 27 touchdowns.

"I am looking forward to making a fresh start on the West Coast," said Carter from his offseason home in Florida. "Ed and I had a number of conversations last year before I signed in Toronto which really helped me in my decision to ultimately join him in BC. The opportunity to play with Mike Reilly is obviously a big factor too. Players want to have fun playing this game and its going to be a lot of fun in BC this year."

He'll be very good for a while then revert to his old idiotic self and self destruct

Makes sense. Hervey needs DB's.

Reilly and Carter on the same team. And an OC willing to let players play to their strengths. It will be fun to watch but not play against.
