Report: CFL star Duron Carter free to sign immediately
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

CFL wideout Duron Carter can sign with an NFL team immediately -- he doesn't have to wait until Feb. 10 as originally thought, reports the Indianapolis Star. The Montreal Alouettes will release Carter from his contract if he agrees to terms with an NFL team, the paper said.

Carter is talking to the Vikings and Colts, with Indy believed to be the frontrunner due to the presence of quarterback Andrew Luck, the paper said.

The son of Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter, Duron Carter recorded 1,939 receiving yards in two CFL seasons. The 6-4, 205-pounder reportedly drew interest from more than a dozen NFL teams.

If he lands with the Colts, Carter would join a receiving corps led by T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief, who flashed big potential as a rookie.

Union challenges Goodell on Adrian Peterson's counseling requirement
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The NFL Players Association filed a legal brief saying Commissioner Roger Goodell's requirement that Adrian Peterson attend counseling was unlawful, reports ESPN.com. The union claims Goodell's disciplinary powers don't extend past suspensions, fines and contract terminations to counseling, the report said.

In November, Goodell suspended Peterson without pay for the rest of the season and said the Vikings running back cannot be reinstated until at least April 15. The move came after Peterson pleaded no contest to recklessly injuring his 4-year-old son last May.

In his letter to Peterson, Goodell set several requirements for reinstatement, including counseling.

"In order to assess your progress going forward, I will establish periodic reviews, the first of which will be on or about April 15, 2015," the commisssioner wrote. "At that time, I will meet with you and your representatives and the NFLPA to review the extent to which you have complied with your program of counseling and therapy and both made and lived up to an affirmative commitment to change such that this conduct will not occur again. A failure to cooperate and follow your plan will result in a lengthier suspension without pay."

Report: Colts, Vikes frontrunners to land WR Duron Carter
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Colts and Vikings are the top candidates to land CFL star wideout Duron Carter, reports the Indianapolis Star. The paper said Carter is drawn to Indy because he'd love to play with quarterback Andrew Luck.

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported in November the Colts want Carter badly and planned to make a considerable offer for him.

Minnesota has an emotional pull, because it's the former team of Carter's father, Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter.

A 6-4, 205-pounder, Duron Carter produced 1,939 receiving yards in two CFL seasons after going undrafted. More than a dozen NFL teams reportedly have expressed interested.

Duron Carter can agree to terms with an NFL club at any point, but cannot sign until Feb. 10, the paper said.

Due to contract, Adrian Peterson era in Minny 'may be over'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Both Vikings coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman have said they want running back Adrian Peterson back next season, but his run in Minnesota "may be over, and it has more to do with his contract than his legal issues," reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Peterson, who turns 30 in two months, carries a cap hit of $15.4 million in 2015. In an interview with ESPN, Peterson "scoffed at the suggestion that he take a pay cut to remain with the Vikings," the paper noted. "Can he and the Vikings find common ground? Or is Peterson ready for a fresh start elsewhere?"

Currently suspended, Peterson can apply for NFL reinstatement on April 15. He pleaded no contest to recklessly injuring his 4-year-old son, a misdemeanor, last May.
