The Saskatchewan Roughriders have released international receiver Duron Carter.

The team announced the move on Saturday evening but did not elaborate as to why the decision was made.

Moments before the announcement, Carter posted on social media about the decision.

Over an hour later, the 27-year-old tweeted once again saying he “might be done with football.”

Carter was in his second season with the team, after joining the club ahead of the 2017 season.
