Former Cowboys QB Quincy Carter Tries Out For Florida Tuskers
Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter tried out with the Florida Tuskers of the United Football League, the UFL Website reported.
The open tryout was held at a Georgia high school with head coach Jay Gruden on Saturday. More than 500 participated in the workout.
Carter has been reportedly working with former Atlanta Falcons receiver Terance Mathis as a personal trainer in Georgia.
In June, Mathis told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “Quincy’s story, he’s one of those guys that you can’t give up on him. He’s a good kid, and I’ve known Quincy since he was in high school. The thing is that I like Quincy a lot and this gives him a chance to bounce back and be Quincy and not be what everyone expects him to be. … He’s doing fine. He has some ways to go, but he’s working hard to just be viable for himself, not for anybody else but for himself.”
In 2003, Carter guided the Cowboys to a 10-6 record and the playoffs in their first season under coach Bill Parcells. But Carter was released in training camp before the 2004 season.
He started briefly for the New York Jets before poor play and drug-related arrests ended his NFL career.
