Carter is currently in Haitin with the Mission of Hope organization.
“An absolute misunderstanding,” is what Andrew Leavitt, the Denver Broncos third year safety Quinton Carter’s defense attorney, is calling this ordeal.
“He was confused when he made the bet,” Leavitt told The Associated Press. “He didn’t know how to play the game. He wasn’t trying to cheat anyone.”
Carter was arrested on March 9th, in a Las Vegas casino when security officials say that they have him on video adding a $5 chip to three bets after the dice had already rolled. For that he faces three felony charges of committing a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment. Each of the three charges carries a maximum sentence of six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
A North Las Vegas judge has postponed action on the case until April 18th, the 2013 NFL Draft will begin on April 25th.
On top of those three charges, there is a warrant charging him with failure to complete counseling after a 2011 misdemeanor marijuana possession case from 2011. Leavitt said that the counseling was completed, but that Carter never turned in proof to the court. Also pointing out that he has since taken an extra counseling course in hopes that the charge will be dropped.
Carter is currently in Haiti passing out food to families that are poverty stricken, orphans and people who are still being effected by the 2010 earthquake. The trip was organized by former NFL kicker Jay Feely through Kelli Masters Management and Mission of Hope.

It would be poetic justice if the New England Patriots could sway defensive end Elvis Dumervil to play in Foxboro. The Denver Broncos were able to sign longtime Patriots receiver Wes Welker with the old strategy of double dipping, getting a great receiver while hurting a conference foe. Revenge is a dish best served cold, and the Patriots surely would love to land the pass rusher...
Somehow, through it all, the Denver Broncos and Elvis Dumervil are still on speaking terms.
The fax machine relationship clearly wasn’t working.
After a second denial by the NFL to reconsider the Broncos and Dumervil’s case, and after Dumervil fired his previous agent and hired Tom Condon, the team and their defensive end are still in talks, The Denver Post reports. Dumervil...
Denver Broncos team president John Elway went on record today with ESPN stating the team has made a new offer to defensive end Elvis Dumervil after his agent failed to file the paperwork of an agreed upon restructured contract by the 4 P.M. EST deadline.
“We’ve offered Elvis a contract,” said Elway Tuesday afternoon. “We’d like to have Elvis back.”

WES IS MORE
Patriots owner Robert Kraft, still smarting over Wes Welker's departure to Denver, stated that the team made a better financial offer to keep the receiver.
If not for a big mistake by the Denver Broncos and a fax machine, there wouldn’t even be a conversation about Elvis Dumervil being on the open market.
But, late Friday afternoon, a mistake happened and Dumervil went from being extended to becoming the best free agent pass rusher available. The dominating defensive end was scheduled to make $8 million dollars.
The Lions, after...

When reports arose Monday that the Patriots had never given Wes Welker a fresh offer, it seemed fitting. While the narrative running up to this offseason was always that the Patriots wanted Welker back, with the price the sticking point, the evidence provided over recent weeks only indicated that New England never planned for Welker to return.
With the Patriots quick to move on...
Last year Elway shocked the football world by nabbing Peyton Manning, mostly so he could send Tebow away and doom us all to free Papa Johns pizzas. Elway couldn’t wait to taste his new team.
Elway got a #1 seed and a glorious Peyton-esque playoff choke job for his efforts. But Elway liked the taste of Manning so much that he needed more salt licks to satisfy his cravings...
