Hes hoping to take the next step on his dream quest to make his hometown team.Im coming in here and Im going to fight for a spot, he said Tuesday as Day 3 of main training camp ended but his just started.Im going to be competing against a lot of these guys and there are a lot of really good players so Ive got to step my level up a lot and just be determined to do the best that I can do.Hes just 21 but was a CJFL All-Canadian and took home MVP honours with the Rifles, on top of being named a Prairie Football Conference All-Star.Last season, it was more of a teaching move to invite the young player to camp. The Bombers also invited a few Rifles players and a University of Manitoba Bisons quarterback to camp this year to work out with the team.But when July rolled around last season, injuries forced the Bombers to look for a Canadian to dress and Carter got the call. Coach Mike OShea said injuries in camp were also the reason Carter got a call this season as the Bombers look to bolster their Canadian talent.When youre faced with a certain number of injuries and youre looking at whos on your list of guys to bring back, he was here before, he understands what were trying to do here, hes local, hes good, said the coach.Carter impressed the coaches last season with his work ethic and ability. He also worked out with a team trainer in the off-season.Winnipeg-born Taylor Renaud, who played for Acadia, is also getting another look at Bombers camp as a receiver this season.The Bombers traded away two Canadian receivers in the off-season to acquire starting quarterback Drew Willy and defensive back Korey Banks. Cheap Custom Jerseys. Willy, who was a backup in Regina, said after Tuesdays practice that hes starting to get more of a feel for the receivers hell be working with this season.One is former B.C. Lions receiver Nick Moore, who was signed as a free agent in the off-season. Willy has known Moore for years, going back to when they were both trying to land jobs in the NFL.I like what Im seeing, Ive thrown with Nick before, said Willy.Guys like (Clarence) Denmark and Rory (Kohlert), these guys are good players as well so its fun to be around talented guys like this. Ive thrown a bunch of balls to Aaron Kelly and weve made a lot of big plays with him. Im just trying to put together things with each guy, get a feel for how they run each route.The CFL labour dispute continues to hang over the camp and the Bombers and the Toronto Argonauts could be the first to feel the impact. They are scheduled to open the exhibition season Monday and the regular season on June 26, also in Winnipeg.The teams player rep, veteran offensive lineman Glenn January, suggested the players arent rushing to take any action.The conversations Ive had have been strictly limited to what we can do to get the CFL to see our point of view, he said.The Winnipeg exhibition game comes before the two Alberta teams could legally strike. January said he knows that.Our strike laws are different than Alberta and I do know that we have a strike vote in hand which is my understanding can be exercised at any point in time.But he also suggested the exhibition game wasnt necessarily in jeopardy, unless the players were forced to vote on the leagues contract offer. If it was rejected, he said it would deprive players in some provinces of any protection under the collective agreement.The two sides in the CFL labour dispute havent held formal meetings since Thursday and no new talks are scheduled.
