Quincy Carter signs af2 deal

Friday, February 2, 2007

BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - Former NFL quarterback Quincy Carter signed Thursday with the Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings, an indoor team playing in the Arena Football League's secondary circuit, af2.

The 29-year-old Carter has not played in the NFL since 2004, when he appeared in seven games for the New York Jets. He was a second-round pick out of Georgia by the Cowboys in 2001 and started all 16 games for Dallas in 2003. Carter has passed for 6,337 yards and 32 touchdowns in 38 games during his four NFL seasons.

He also rushed for 518 yards and three touchdowns.

"I know quite a few players who have moved from the outdoor game to the AFL and af2, and even more that have moved from arena football to the outdoor game," Carter said. "I see af2 as a place to begin the process of getting back to the National Football League."

Carter signed with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League last year, but was released less than a week into training camp.

Off-the-field problems contributed to Carter's demise in the NFL.

He was in the league's substance-abuse program after failing a drug test while with Dallas.

At the end of his only season with the Jets, Carter left the team four days before their playoff game against Pittsburgh to be with his ailing mother in Decatur, Ga. He later entered a rehab program.

"Quincy coming here is exactly the message the Battle Wings want to send out to football players everywhere," Battle Wings coach Jon Norris said. "We want to be known as a place for aspiring NFL players to develop and hone their skills."
