Cris Carter told NFL rookies to have a “fall guy” for potential crimes.
An NBC Sports report Sunday called attention to video posted by the NFL that shows the former player Borland was referring was former receiver Cris Carter.
Carter, who currently works as an analyst for ESPN, appears in the video talking to a group of 2014 rookies alongside former defensive tackle and fellow Hall of Famer Warren Sapp. Carter brings Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to the stage at one point to ask him if he has a fall guy for when he gets into trouble.
The comments came at the NFL's 2014 rookie symposium. The league issued a statement on Carter's comments Sunday. The NFL.com video which showed Carter speaking to the players has since been taken down.
“You all are not going to all do the right stuff,” Carter says in the video. “So I got to teach you all how to get around all this stuff too. If you're going to have a crew, one of those fools got to know he's going to jail. We'll get him out.” His final comment is then echoed by Sapp.
You can watch Carter's comments below.
