Cris started playing football and basketball while attending Middletown High School. He then started to use the name Cris after the football player Cris Collinsworth.

After high school, Carter was scouted heavily by various colleges for both football and basketball. He decided to go to Ohio State, and initially thought that he could play both basketball and football. Eventually, he focused on football after making a significant impact during his first year. He was gaining recognition for his skills and made great plays during his run with the team. During his senior year however, he signed with sports agent Norby Walters which led to his ineligibility to play for the school. He joined the 1987 NFL supplemental Draft and was picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles. He didn’t do much during his first year, but started getting more involved the following year. Carter however had a problem with coach Buddy Ryan and it resulted in him being cut from the team.

He was then picked up by the Minnesota Vikings, becoming the top receiver of the team after just a year. After Dennis Green became their coach, they started showing strength in the NFL with an 11-5 record, winning the NFC Central Division title during that season. Carter had become one of the best players in the team, but they eventually lost against the Washington Redskins during the Wild Card round. In 1993, Carter had a breakout season and was subsequently voted into the Pro Bowl. He posted career highs which continued in the 1994 season but the team still couldn’t break through the first round of the playoffs. Carter was still the main offensive weapon of the Vikings in the following years, and he continued to make consecutive Pro Bowl appearances. They finally broke through the first round of the playoffs in 1997 before losing to the San Francisco 49ers. In 1998, after drafting Randy Moss, the Vikings would go on a strong 15-1 record and they became favorites to reach the Super Bowl. They reached the NFC Championship Game this time, before losing to the Atlanta Falcons despite having home ground advantage. Carter rebounded with amazing statistics during the next season and finished as part of NFL’s All Decade Team. In 2000, Carter reached the 1000 reception plateau becoming the second player in NFL history to do so. Unfortunately the Vikings had a losing record next season, and this ended his streak at eight consecutive Pro Bowls.

The Vikings ended his contract and he went on to work for “Inside the NFL” on HBO before being called to play for the Miami Dolphins. After playing for them for a season, he then retired and went back to being an analyst. While working as an analyst, Carter also joined St. Thomas Aquinas High School as an assistant coach. He established a sports training center in South Florida and also became a minister. He made appearances in video games such as “NFL Street 2”, and continued to be active with the NFL. Recently, he became a coach for the 2015 Pro Bowl along with Michael Irvin.

For his personal life, Cris married Melanie in 1990, who helped him overcome problems with drugs and alcohol. Their son Duron Carter became a football player.
