Carter Signed By ESPN
Viking Update Staff
Posted Feb 27, 2008
Cris Carter didn't make the Hall of Fame on his first try, but he did make a big career move, joining ESPN as a studio analyst on the same day the network announced it would be letting former Viking teammate Sean Salisbury go.
Viking in, Viking out. That was the line of the day at ESPN, where the network announced the signing of one former Viking and the release of another.
was announced as a new hire by the network, which plans to use Carter on its daily “NFL Live” program, as well as “SportsCenter,” ESPN Radio and the sister TV network ESPN News. Carter is also expected to be part of the network’s draft coverage in April.
Salisbury did not have his contract renewed after 12 years, where he had been a football analyst. It has been speculated the decision not to pick up his contract had to do with an incident last year in which he allegedly took a photo-phone picture of his genitals and e-mailed it to co-workers. He was suspended for one week when the news became public.
Carter will begin with ESPN starting April 1.
