01:36 PM ET 04.29 | Undrafted wideout Duron Carter is following in his father's footsteps by signing with the Minnesota Vikings. Carter jumped around with several schools before preparing to enter the NFL. The son of Hall of Fame wideout Cris Carter hasn't seen much playing time in college. He caught 13 passes with Ohio State his freshman year, but eventually left for academic reasons. He transferred to Alabama in 2011 and then moved on to Florida Atlantic in 2012, never playing a snap for either team.

With that kind of record, it's no wonder he needed Daddy's help to get him a job.

A sympathy signing to make his dad happy.

I would think their plates would be full with hyping the new uniforms.

Bingo. They'll bring him into camp and quietly cut him once they don't need the bodies for afternoon drills any more.

Sounds like a future Hall-of-Famer.
