Three reasons Cris Carter may not be an idiot after all

Cris Carter did not exactly endear himself to Lions fans last fall when he left Calvin Johnson off his list of elite NFL receivers. Seems Carter, the former Vikings’ Pro Bowl wide receiver, has had a change of heart. Here are three reasons Carter is not an idiot after all.

1. He’s seen the light and he’s not afraid to admit it.

2. On ESPN’s NFL Live Carter gave Johnson the respect he is due and threw in Matthew Stafford too. He called the two of them the most dynamic duo in the NFL saying, “When you have a young quarterback, under the age of 25, coming off a 5,000-yard season, and you have the most dangerous weapon in the National Football League in Calvin Johnson, that’s why, this duo, to me, is the absolute best. Franchise quarterback with the No. 1 big-play wide receiver in the NFL.”

3. Not only did he change his mind on Johnson, but he realizes that Stafford is a special young quarterback. There may be hope for Carter after all.
