'A Football Life: Cris Carter' to air on NFL Network tonight


Vikings fans get a treat tonight when NFL Network airs "A Football Life: Cris Carter" at 8:00 p.m. local time.

The series takes a look at the path current and former players and coaches take to the NFL. Fans watching tonight's episode will get a close look at Carter's journey to the NFL, which started as a high school star and eventually led him all the way to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Bleacher Report says the one-hour show will also focus on Carter's early years in the NFL, when drug use blocked him from becoming the player he would evolve into.

He became one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history. In 234 career games, he caught 1,101 passes for 13,899 yards and 130 touchdowns.

Carter called the day he was inducted into the Hall of Fame the "happiest day of my life."

Last Thursday, during halftime of the Vikings-Washington game, Carter was honored with his Hall of Fame ring. It's a doozy!
