A piece of news out of the Minnesota Vikings camp. The Vikings have signed Duron Carter. Why is this important? He gets to follow in his father's foot steps.

He's the son of Cris Carter. That's right: the son of Hall of Fame wide receiver will have a chance to fill his father's ginormous cleats in none other than a Viking uniform. 

The son of the former Viking started his collegiate career at Ohio State. In 2009, Duron Carter had only 13 receptions for 176 yards and a touchdown. Unfortunately, thats the only Div. I experience Carter has. In 2010 Carter played at Coffeyville Community College in Kansas then transferred to Alabama in 2011, however was never ineligible to play. Carter later attended Florida Atlantic, but never played for the team.

Nevertheless, the 6-foot-5 205 lbs Carter will have a chance to make the Vikings squad. Its tough to make anything of the young Carter because he hasn't don't much as of late, but if the kid has some of his father's skills in him, there's a possibility the Vikings may have found a gold mine.
