About the Author
Cris Carter spent 16 years as an NFL wide receiver — where he became one of the most dominant pass-catchers in the history of football — before embarking on a broadcasting career that has led to his current position as an analyst for ESPN. Cris currently is best known for his appearances on the network’s Sunday Countdown and Monday Countdown shows and he served as a member of HBO’s Inside the NFL prior to that. He is known as one of the most insightful and intelligent football analysts in the industry. Carter was just as cerebral during his playing days, when he was known for his sure hands, precise routes and an uncanny ability to score touchdowns in bunches. He appeared in eight Pro Bowls and set nearly every major receiving record for the Minnesota Vikings. When Carter finished his career, he ranked second all-time in the NFL in receptions (1,130) and touchdown receptions (130).
