The NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame announced that recent inductee Cris Carter will be receiving his diamond-studded ring during halftime of Thursday night’s Washington-Minnesota game.
Carter spent his first three years in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, but is obviously far better known for the following 12 he spent with the Vikings. He also played a handful of games with the Miami Dolphins in 2002 before hanging up his cleats for good.
Over his 16-year career, Carter hauled in 1,101 passes (fourth all time) while breaking the 100-reception mark in a season twice (he recorded a whopping 122 in both 1994 and 1995). He tallied 13,899 reception yards (ninth all time) and 130 career touchdowns (eighth all time).
A player of such elite stature deserves an insane ring, and Carter will be receiving exactly that on Thursday night.
