If Only Cris Carter’s Son Followed His Dad’s Advice

Cris Carter recently appeared on the NFL Network giving life advice to first-year players at the NFL rookie symposium in Carlsbad, California.

Cris and Duron Carter

Highlights:

“Your friends start saying, ‘Oh, man, I knew you were gonna change as soon as you got into the league. Yeah, you better change.”

“You’re talking about people who can drag you down quick. Make sure you keep them in check.”

“Have all your affairs in order before you get on that field, man.”

“This league is better because of what me and my comrades did while we played … that’s why we get upset when you get in the predicaments you get in.”

Too bad Carter’s son Duron wasn’t in the room.

I don’t think it’s unreasonable to observe that Duron Carter’s first year at Ohio State has been nothing short of a disaster.
