Quincy Carter could be back in Bossier City
News has surfaced that former Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings quarterback Quincy Carter has a "50-50" chance of playing for the Rio Grande Valley Dorados, the team the Battle Wings fans love to hate, or Corpus Christi this season.
The Monitor in Hidalgo reports that Dorados coach Marty Hammond has conversed with the former Dallas Cowboy from his drug rehab facility in Florida. Carter pleaded guilty to drug possession in Shreveport several weeks ago, but still faces similar charges in Dallas.
“I think he’s interested,” Hammond told the Monitor. “He stresses that he wants to get his life right, wants to do the right things, and that’s mainly what we talked about, making the right decisions and things like that.”
Sound familiar? That's the same song and dance that Carter played in front of the media here when he was introduced as the Wings' quarterback.
According to reports before he left our area, Carter stated that he would like to play for Rio Grande and come back here to put one on the Battle Wings. If he can stay out of jail or drug rehab long enough, maybe he can make that happen. The Wings host Rio Grande on July 4 -- mark that date down.
