The Canadian Football League season has come to a close, and that means the contract of wide receiver Duron Carter is officially expired. This means he is now allowed to work out for NFL teams. He will not be allowed to sign a contract until February.

I bring him up because as we previously discussed, the 49ers are reportedly interested in Carter. Jason LaCanfora reported this in November, and mentioned it again on Monday. LaCanfora reported that Carter could potentially wait until after the holidays wrap up so he can let his body heal following the CFL season. Even if he did conduct workouts now, he'd likely be back in forth a further workout after the holidays anyway. This gives him to get everything set, and do what he can to further a potential NFL career.

After having numerous problems in college, Carter ended up in the CFL the last two seasons. The son of Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter has emerged as a capable receiver with the Montreal Alouettes. In 2013, he had 49 receptions for 909 yards and five touchdowns. This past season, he finished with 75 receptions for 1,030 yards and seven touchdowns.
