Daddy pulling strings? There isn't much game tape so what are the Vikings looking at to make this decision?
it doesn't take much to get a free agent contract. guys that have never played before get free agent contracts.
He's very talented. Won't have to worry about money. Problem at BAMA was he didn't go to class, didn't fit in with team. but in the pros, could very well be a steal. The Vikings had a pretty good draft this year
He will never play a down, talent be damned.
15 National Championships, 23 SEC Championships, NCAA Record 60 Postseason Bowl Appearances, NCAA Record 35 Bowl Victories
Congrats and all the best to him. Hope he surprises the naysayers.
Randy Moss and all the other head cases that have been playing forever as an example...... Sad but true....if you run really good pass routes.....UR fast.....and catch everything with in reach.......stay out of jail...and make it on time for the games.....you can play in the NFL
Not saying that these type of players will help team win championship. To the contrary , I think team chemistry is important. But Many NFL teams are more caught up in players talent level
Doubt he even makes it to the first formal cut day.
They're going to be shocked to discover that Duron Carter does not, in fact, exist.
+1 I think he's in the same class with Bigfoot , very little footage and no body to confirm.
Duron's former Coffeyville quarterback, Cayden Cochran, remains unimpressed, calling the wideout on Twitter, "the most lazy, whiny & non-work ethic player the nfl has ever seen ... Horrible person & will be a complete cancer to any team on the board."
Opinions on Duron are all over the map, but the Vikings haven't taken a risk by adding him to their class of undrafted free agents. If Duron matures and blooms, they've unearthed a gem. If he doesn't, the Vikings will move on without a care.
"He. Just. Hates. (Bleeping). School," Cris Carter told USA Today's Mike Garafolo earlier this month.
His father insists Duron will thrive in a football-only environment, saying, "I know there aren't a lot of better receivers than him in this draft."
Because not everyone is weak and carry grudges against people they've never met to fail at life...
The Vikings are officially on "Duron Watch 2013". Maybe Chris can give their beat writer some pointers.
By His grace, the Almighty gives me forgiveness when I don't deserve it. Based on that, I can't understand why Duran doesn't deserve multiple chances to succeed in life.
You mean like Duron himself?
Me personally, I'd rather see that roster spot go to someone whose daddy hasn't had to lobby and pull every string imaginable to get the kid a shot in the league. I'd rather that spot go to a kid with maybe less talent and certainly with fewer connections -- but more work ethic. Maybe it's just me.

Has not shit to do with "grace." Has everything to do with who Duron Carter's daddy is. If Duron Carter succeeds and makes the team, that means some other kid -- who is almost certainly more deserving in every way but pure talent and connections -- gets cut. I'd rather see Duron crash and burn so that other kid can live his dream.
Duron's opportunity with the Vikings may indeed be due to Cris' connection with the organization. Yet, from day-1, it'll be Duron's responsibility to make it, or break it. This poster is glad he's getting the *chance* to make the team. Yes, I acknowledge that if Duron succeeds, then another aspiring player's dreams are dashed. But, that's true on every team, replete with their respective share of undeserving types.
