Source: Dolphins attempting to sign Cris Carter
The Miami Dolphins are attempting to sign the retired Cris Carter to beef up their injury-depleted receiving corps, and he could join the team next week, a source within the NFL said Saturday night.
Several Web sites, citing anonymous sources, said Carter agreed in principle to an incentives-based contract with Miami that has yet to be completed.
If the contract is worked out, Carter is prepared to join the team as early as Monday, according to the reports.
The source spoke to The Associated Press on condition he not be identified.
The 36-year-old Carter, who had been working on HBO's ''Inside the NFL,'' is expected to replace injured receiver Oronde Gadsden. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Saturday that Gadsden has elected to undergo surgery on his injured left wrist and will be out for the season.
Earlier Saturday, Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene declined comment on Carter's contract talks and said the team would have nothing to say about Gadsden until Monday.
Carter's agent, Mitch Frankel, didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
Carter retired from the NFL in late May as the NFL's second all-time leading receiver with 1,093 catches for 13,833 yards and 129 touchdowns. He had 73 catches for 871 yards and six touchdowns last season with the Minnesota Vikings.
Carter could be in the lineup in the Dolphins' first game following next week's bye, at Green Bay.
The Dolphins had auditioned free agent wideouts Chris Sanders, Sean Dawkins, Reidel Anthony, Chris Coleman, Chris Jackson and Na Brown.
