Apparently the Minnesota Vikings were not impressed enough during their three-day rookie minicamp to sign undrafted free-agent wide receiver Duron Carter, son of Viking great Cris Carter.

Citing “a source with knowledge of the situation,” Mike Florio of NBCSports.com reports Carter didn’t do enough on a tryout basis at the team’s camp to get the team to offer him a contract.

Carter was invited to rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, with no guarantees of a contract.

Undrafted rookie bonuses

Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities broke down the Vikings’ divvying up of $64,500 in bonuses to 15 of the 16 players they signed before rookie minicamp began.

Former Southern Methodist fullback Zach Line received the biggest bonus of the group at $8,000. Recently released receiver Nicholas Edwards received a $5,000 bonus.
