CRIS CARTERGame 435 | November 17, 1992 | Cris Carter, Todd Scott, Mike Tice
Let go by the Philadelphia Eagles after the 1989 season, Carter signed with the Vikings and went on to be leading receiver in the team's history. With Rich Gannon and Sean Salisbury alternating at quarterback, Carter emerged in 1992 as the team's leading receiver. Tice, a tight end who would become the team's head coach a decade later, joined the team in 1992 after stints with Seattle and Washington. Scott, the team's starting safety, was a sixth-round draft choice in 1991.
Game 817 | November 7, 2013 | Cris Carter
Back in Minnesota to receive his Hall of Fame ring at a Vikings halftime ceremony, Carter said the Vikings and Dunker member Wheelock Whitney literally saved his life when the team picked him up on waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles. The Vikings got him into a treatment program to control his abuse of drugs and alcohol. At the time of his retirement, Carter ranked second in career receptions (1,101) behind only Jerry Rice.
