The son of NFL Hall of Famer, Cris Carter, has returned to the CFL. Duron Carter, who last played for the BC Lions in 2019, will bring to the Elks six years of CFL experience as both a wide receiver and defensive back. With the Chris Jones defence, Carter will be slotted in on the defensive side of the ball. Jones, when coach of Saskatchewan, converted Carter to a defensive back in 2017 & 2018 where both his interceptions led to touchdowns. Carter hasn’t played football since 2019.
