Cris Carter Elected to the Hall of Fame

CrisCarterFor a player as talented and as accomplished as Cris Carter was, it’s a shame it took them this long to induct him in to the NFL Hall of Fame. He’s been eligible for far too long.

But Cris is part of the class of the 2013 HOF inductees, and that’s a good thing. From Yahoo Sports:

Cris Carter entered the NFL as a fourth-round pick out of Ohio State by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1987 Supplemental draft and would go on to catch 1,101 passes for 13,899 yards and 130 touchdowns, ranking second in NFL history in both receptions and receiving touchdowns at the time of his retirement. While with the Minnesota Vikings, Carter set an NFL single-season record with 122 receptions in 1994, the first of eight consecutive Pro Bowl seasons (1994-2001) in his 16-season career.

Congratulations, #2!

  1. I couldn’t be happier for Cris Carter it is long overdue and well deserved.

    I however cant get over the fact that for nearly 20 years I had no idea of how he left OSU and can’t help think he was the original Clarett and Pryor.

    Lastly, If the reports are true that he said he wants his son Duron Carter to be his presenter at the HOF ceremony are true it is the funniest and saddest thing I have ever heard.

    • Yeah, Cris Carter was definitely before my “time” as a Buckeye fan, so I clearly look at the past through scarlet colored glasses but he definitely wasn’t the best example of a Buckeye.
