My, how far Quincy Carter has fallen:
Quincy Carter’s next stop will be north of the border. The former Cowboys quarterback has signed a one-year deal with an option for another with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.
Carter, who was released by the Cowboys during the first week of the 2004 training camp, was out of football completely in 2005. Carter did spend the majority of 2004 with the Jets, playing in seven games as the backup.
“I’m proud to join the Montreal Alouettes,” Carter said. “This is a great opportunity for me to do what I love best, which is to play football.”
Carter will not have a press conference until he shows up the beginning of May for training camp. The Alouettes currently have five other quarterbacks on the roster, nine-year veteran Anthony Calvillo, first-year quarterbacks Marcus Brady, Ryan Dinwiddie, Scott McBrien and Ell Roberson.
Carter said he was intent on returning to the NFL, but off-the-field issues likely are preventing him from an immediate comeback in the NFL. Carter is reportedly facing a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse program, and it’s unlikely an NFL would sign a player knowing he faces suspension.
The former second-round draft pick started 31 regular-season games for the Cowboys and one playoff game in three seasons with the Cowboys. He led the team to a 10-6 record in 2003, the first season under head coach Bill Parcells.
Geez. He took the Cowboys to the playoffs and then got cut because of drug issues the following offseason. He hasn’t gotten his head above water yet.
I hope this works out for him. He’s a talented athlete who just needs to get his head screwed on straight.
