He was released by Philadelphia on Aug. 25, 2013.

A 23-year-old native of Edgerton, WI, Carrier attended Beloit (WI) College, where he appeared in 39 games and set school records with 189 receptions for 3,111 yards and 29 touchdowns. He earned All-Midwest Conference honors twice and was named WFCA Private College Player of the Year following his senior season.
