EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Former Minnesota Vikings receiver Cris Carter has always been outspoken and as he has fallen short of induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame the past few years, he's shared his opinion on the process.
Few doubt Carter's impact as one of the top wide receivers of his generation. He ranks fourth in NFL history with 1,101 catches and fourth with 130 receiving touchdowns. The debate, at least lately, is how the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, recognizes the receiver position. Jerry Rice, widely regarded as the best receiver in NFL History has been the only inductee at the position in the past three years.
The receiver position, with three qualified candidates in Carter, Tim Brown and Andre Reed, has been shut out the past two years since Rice was inducted. Carter says he feels good about his chances this year, his sixth time as a finalist, when the 2013 inductees are announced Saturday. But Carter just hopes the stalemate at receiver is broken this year.
