Duron Carter staying in Riderville for another season

Saskatchewan Roughriders wide receiver Duron Carter (89) makes a one-handed grab for a touchdown in front of Toronto Argonauts defensive back Akwasi Owusu-Ansah (9) during first half CFL football action in Regina on Saturday, July 29, 2017. It was a good, bad and ugly type week in the CFL. Carter's one-handed grab in Saskatchewan's 38-27 win over Toronto would qualify as good with Argonauts defender Johnny Sears' stunning decision not to touch receiver Bakari Grant while he was on the ground being the bad.

Carter was named the Riders most outstanding player and was also named a CFL All-Star in 2017.
