Cris Carter To Be Inducted Into NFL Hall of Fame Saturday
Former Minnesota Viking (and Philadelphia Eagle) Cris Carter will be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame this Saturday in Canton, Ohio. Carter's 16-season career began in 1987 when he was a fourth round pick by Philadelphia. His first NFL catch was a 22-yard touchdown.
That first catch against the St. Louis Cardinals was the first of what eventually became 130 career touchdown receptions, placing him second on the all-time list.
After spending his first four season as an Eagle, Carter joined the Vikings in 1990, where he would spend the next twelve years before retiring after the 2002 season. He led the Vikes in receptions for ten straight years, piled up eight 1000+ yard seasons, and was named to the Pro Bowl as a Viking eight times.
