    Cris Carter and Warren Sapp both providing guidance to NFL rookies. Roger Goodell earns every penny of that 44 million per year.

    At the 2014 Rookie Symposium, Cris Carter and Warren Sapp instructed rookies to get a fall guy in case they got into any legal trouble. The above video was on NFL.com until this afternoon, when they deleted it.

    While wearing his Hall of Fame jacket, Carter told them:

    “Y’all not gonna all do the right stuff. I gotta teach yall how to get around all this stuff too. If you gonna have a crew, one of them fools got to know he going to jail.”

    In an interview with ESPN, Chris Borland, who retired because of concussions, mentioned that a veteran player told them to get a fall guy so they could skirt legal trouble. It appears that player was Carter, with Warren Sapp by his side. Sapp is probably not who the NFL wants modeling behavior for rookies, since he was recently charged with domestic violence.

    Update (7:43 p.m.): The NFL has issued a statement about Carter’s presentation:

    This was an unfortunate and inappropriate comment made by Cris Carter during the 2014 NFC rookie symposium. The comment was not representative of the message of the symposium or any other league program. The league’s player engagement staff immediately expressed concern about the comment to Cris. The comment was not repeated in the 2014 AFC session or this year’s symposium.

    I think that Warren Sapp and Cris Carter together are worse than Amos and Andy in representing the african american community.

    There really is just a different mentality/culture between blacks and whites, why do we keep fighting that realisation? It's like Israel and Palestine, no matter what you do or how much time passes, the mentality will always be different.

    Cris Carter is a college educated millionaire and this is his mentality??

    I know, i know, he probably didn't have to go to class much, but technically he's a college grad.

    *NFL line is always "all about the fans". Have yet to run into an NFL fan that loves preseason.

    *4 preseason games but don't play anyone of significance for too long in fear of injury. Makes sense but why 4 preseason games then? Oh yeah

    *Outside of 10 guys tops, coaches could've picked their rosters when camp began. They've only been evaluating these guys since May."


    look at Troy biting the hand that feeds him. :golfclap:

    Chris Carter was a piece of shit in Philly and he's a piece of shit now. Leopards never change their spots. He just hid it until he got in the HOF

    I know him well, he played for the Eagles and Buddy Ryan cut him because he was heavy into cocaine, so I'm not trying to prop him up there as some Summa Cum Laude or anything, I was just saying here is a black guy, technically a college grad , and a millionaire and w/ a job as a commentator that probably pays him a few hundred thou a yr.

    Even with all that his mentality is do whatever you want just blame it on somebody else??

    I can't disagree with you there. i don't know, didn't the NFL talk to him before they let him talk to these rookies? Did they just tell him to go in there and give advice based on his experiences?
