The Royals conducted open tryouts last week and attracted the attention of an unlikely roster candidate: Arkansas wide receiver Carlton Salters.â†µ
If you didn’t catch the story, Abrams was out covering an open tryout for the Kansas City Royals last week and a familiar face showed up. Salters, a senior with the Razorbacks, said he saw an add in the newspaper and decided to give it a whirl. He did more than that, apparently.â†µ
In fact, he did so well the senior was invited back for a second workout with someone the Royals’ assistant general manager for scouting and player development in attendance.â†µ
Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino wasn't available for comment so we're not sure what his plans are for his senior season.
