Must read

Cris Carter is known for overcoming a drug addiction early in his NFL career to become one of the greatest receivers of all time, and the Hall of Famer says he received illegal benefits while in college. played a role in him to go the wrong way.

Carter was a guest on “Untold Stories” this week with Bleacher Report’s Master Tesfatsion. He shared some of his thoughts on the NCAA’s new name, look, and lookalike rules, which led to a discussion about him taking illegal benefits in the 1980s at Ohio State. Carter says a deal he signed with former sports agents Lloyd Bloom and Norby Walters contributed to poor decisions.

Carter said he met Bloom and Walter when Ohio State sent him to Miami for a Playboy All-American photo shoot. He said he viewed making a deal with the agents as “cutting edge” and ahead of his time.

“I think they gave me $ 15,000. I remember picking them up in Columbus, that’s where we signed the contract like this next week, ”Carter recalled. “I don’t remember if I’m driving or if I’m in the back. I am counting the money. They were all hundreds. I think I have $ 10,000 to sign and $ 5,000 later. I also got a car and received $ 500 a month that Western Unioned.

Carter was a freshman at the time and came from a poor upbringing, so he said $ 500 was a lot for him.

“People start thinking, well, $ 500 a month, I’m a freshman. I will have this for three years. I didn’t have to worry about all of that. I got a request for an American Express. I was like, ‘I’ve never had a credit card. I have never ever lived in a house, I have always lived in a housing project. ‘

However, he did not spend the money wisely. He said he was only smoking marijuana at the time, but later had enough money to experiment with hard drugs. That is why he is concerned that athletes can earn money now while in school.

“For me, it is not about money. I think there is a way that we can compensate, but giving young people unlimited amounts of income is not the best thing, ”he said.
