    CFL axes Quincy Carter

    Former NFL quarterback Quincy Carter can now add the phrase "former CFL quarterback" to his resume after being cut by the Montreal Alouettes.

    Carter was cut late Tuesday night after roughly a week of training camp. Team officials say that he was cut based on his performance.

    The former Dallas Cowboys and New York Jet was competing with several others for an opportunity to serve as the backup to starter Anthony Calvillo.

    Obtained by the Cowboys in the second round of the 2001 draft, Carter started in eight games as a rookie, seven in 2002, and all 16 in 2003, leading the Cowboys to the playoffs in the first year of the Bill Parcells regime.

    Prior to the 2004 season, however, Carter was cut after violating the league's substance abuse policy. Carter signed with the Jets, and appeared in seven games in 2004. He filed a non-injury grievance against the Cowboys, which is still pending.

    Carter was out of the NFL in 2005.

    The former Georgia Bulldog would have earned $75,000 (Canadian) if he had made the Alouettes' roster. "I haven't played in about a year and a half," Carter recently told the Montreal Gazette. "To get out and get the juices going is a great feeling. To get on the field, back calling signals was good."

    Good, but temporary.

    He definately has some talent but he needs to get his head right first. Maybe he will surface in the AFL next.
