Carter On Road To Recovery

Tyler JonesAnalyst IAugust 1, 2008

Quincy Carter has been rehabilitated.

In an interview with CBSsportsline, the former Georgia Bulldog and Dallas Cowboy expressed progressions he's had since it was discovered he had a cocaine problem a few years ago. Carter spoke of his time in halfway house, and how he's learned about his dependencies.

Carter's progression might also translate to the football field. Carter has a workout with the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday, and is planning on signing with the Arena League's Kansas City Brigade if the NFL has passed him by.

But that's not important. What's important is that Carter has gotten his life together, or so it seems. It's sad we still hear stories like this today, concerning players like Matt Jones, who also is trying to salvage his NFL career. Hopefully Matt can follow in Carter's foot-steps, but for now, Carter deserves some support from those who've followed his career.

Whether things work out with football or not, the good thing is that, as Carter said, regardless, "I'll be okay."
