Former Vikings Wide Receiver Cris Carter’s Son Duron to Get a Tryout with Minnesota

With hopes “like father, like son” applies in the Carter family, the Minnesota Vikings have reportedly extended an invitation to Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter’s son, Duron, to join the team for a tryout.

The report came from ESPN reporter Adam Schefter via Twitter Sunday after the 2013 NFL Draft was in the books.

Duron joins about 30 other undrafted players for a three-day rookie minicamp that starts this coming weekend. The Hall of Fame wideout’s son has dealt with academic issues, bouncing from school to school. Speaking to those issues, Duron was quoted in the Star Tribune, saying:

College football is the minor leagues of the NFL and I really messed that up. I guess I had to grow up. But school just didn’t interest me.

The older Carter stood behind his son in being a hard-working, talented individual that just didn’t fit in the academic world, telling the USA Today:

 He. Just. Hates. (Bleeping). School.

Duron has also been offered a tryout by the Baltimore Ravens, but reportedly opted for the opportunity with the Vikings because he said Minnesota “showed him more love” and the family has a history with the team.
