It’ll surprise few people that the son of Vikings Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter has some talent. Duron Carter has had multiple NFL tryouts after a troubled college career, including with the Vikings at one point, but he has never been able to take his game to the world’s largest stage other than during a very brief stay with the Colts.

Instead, Duron Carter destroys opponents in the Canadian Football League as a member of the Montreal Alouettes.

The website 3 Down Nation recently recapped some of Carter’s moment in Montreal that don’t exactly reflect well on him, including a recent altercation with a teammate and a moment in 2014 where the team actually held a vote regarding their ability to play alongside the star playmaker.

Many think the Vikings could use the 2015 NFL Draft to bolster the depth chart at wide receiver, perhaps as early as in the first round, but there is always the possibility they get a jump start.

They flirted with CFL star wide out Duron Carter already this offseason, and the next free agency rumor also involves a wide out.

Mike Williams (6′ 2″ and 212 pounds) has had an up and down career in his first five NFL seasons.  He has twice came within 50 yards of the 1,000 yard mark and posted 11 touchdowns as a rookie. He was expected to bring continued success to Buffalo last season, but 2015 couldn’t have gone much worse for him.

The Super Bowl football game around Katy Perry (and Left Shark) is over, signaling the end to yet another fantastic season (on the field) of American tackle football. But luckily, this signals the giving way to my favorite season of all: HOT TAKE Season.

In honor of Episode 99 of the Purple FTW! Podcast, I threw together a list of 9.9 Hot Takes. Now these are definitely not #StoneColdHotTakes level of outlandishness (although my ‘Harbaugh to Ann Arbor’ call from September landed pretty well), but they definitely have some kick.

Costco Free Sample: “2) We’ve got OUR Brady & Belichick”…

Boom. Roasted.

Get the rest & the full episode after the jump.

Unless your team is one of the two Super Bowl contenders, it is indeed a good thing that there is a lack of headlines being made, and that is (knock on wood) the case for the Vikings right now.  There are still some items to check out around the web, however, and here they are:
