Buccaneers to work out receiver Duron Carter

I forgot to post about this yesterday, so here it is: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be one of the first teams to meat with receiver Duron Carter, according to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller. Carter is the son of NFL legend Cris Carter, the man who tormented the Bucs for years and years when they were still in the NFC Central.

Carter will also meet with the Kansas City Chief, Indianapolis Colts and Minnesota Vikings among others, according to Miller, so the Bucs are going to have some competition if they want Carter on their team. He can't sign with an NFL team until February.

Carter went undrafted in 2013 and went to play in the CFL instead, where he put up 124 catches for 1,939 yards and 12 touchdowns in two seasons. He's now angling to get back into the NFL, and this Yahoo! story makes it sound like he was simply a raw receiver who needed some development and maturity.

The Bucs could certainly use some extra talent at receiver, with Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson their only reliable wideouts and Louis Murphy's return not being entirely certain, Carter could be a nice addition to Tampa Bay's group.
