Carter attended Ohio State and was drafted by the Eagles in the 4th round of the 1987 NFL supplemental draft. He developed quite the drug habit while playing for the Eagles. Head coach Buddy Ryan, making one of the toughest coaching decisions of his career, graciously let him slip away, and, in the process, helped to coin one of ESPN's Chris Berman's famous quotes about Carter: "All he does is catch touchdowns". Carter was signed by the Vikings, found Jesus, and became a 4 time all pro and played in 8 straight Pro Bowls. When he left the Vikings after 2001, he held most of the team career receiving records. He briefly played for the Dolphins in 2002.
Carter is currently one of the hosts of HBO's Inside the NFL. He is also an ordained minister.
