Cris Carter tells NFL rookies to get a fall guy

One part of the Chris Borland story by ESPN The Magazine that didn't fit with the rest of the tale but was still pretty surprising was Borland's "fall guy" story.

According to the recently retired San Francisco 49er, someone at his NFL rookie symposium encouraged him and the other rookies to get a "fall guy," basically someone to take the heat if they got in trouble with the law. Not that Borland would lie, but it seemed unbelievable that someone would actually tell NFL rookies to do that at the symposium.

Oh, someone did tell them to do just that. While wearing his Pro Football Hall of Fame jacket: Former NFL receiver Cris Carter.

BroBible.com did a great job to find the video from the symposium, which was displayed on the NFL's website. The video was titled "Rookies learn life lessons from Sapp and Carter." The NFL took it down on Sunday afternoon but there were versions on the Internet, including some on YouTube

Itís funny until somebody gets hurt, then itís hilarious

Re: Cris Carter tells NFL rookies to get a fall guy

Here's what I don't get about him telling those guys to "get a fall guy."

When Carter was with the Eagles he had a substance abuse problem. Buddy Ryan, then the Eagles head coach, cut him because of it. Carter credited Ryan with giving him a wake up call and straightening out his life. He even invited Ryan and his wife to his HOF induction ceremony. Why does he turn around and tell young players to have somebody else take the blame for their actions?

Low Life, Buddy did the right thing letting him go but keeping quiet about his issues.

Here's some revisionist history.

Maybe Chris slipped off the wagon again or the lipstick is wearing off the pig.
