INDIANAPOLIS — The Colts have made their first big off-season splash, signing former CFL receiver Duron Carter.

Terms of the deal were not announced Monday, but the 6-foot-5, 205-pound receiver was considered one of the top talents coming out of Canada this year. He is the son of Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter.

With veterans Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks both set to become free agents next month, Indianapolis needed to reinforce its receiving corps.

Adding Carter could help.

He started his college career at Ohio State, then went to a junior college before transferring to Alabama in 2011 and Florida Atlantic in 2012. In two seasons with Montreal in the CFL, Carter had 124 receptions, 1,939 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was selected a CFL All-Star in 2014.
