Carter was forced to enter the Supplemental Draft following his suspension from Ohio State after he signed with an agent. This led to Philadelphia selecting him in the fourth round.

Carter was a solid player with the Eagles but was never looked at as a potential Hall of Fame-caliber player. He was unceremoniously released from the Eagles following off-field problems and a falling out with then-coach Buddy Ryan.

Following these problems, the Minnesota Vikings claimed Carter and the rest, as they say, is history. Carter went on to become an eight-time Pro Bowler and a three-time All Pro en route to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, where he will be inducted next month.
