    ‘‘No big deal to me, but Jerry Rice is the best receiver ever,” Carter said.  “There’s no question.  Carter also said that making the Hall of Fame was something that even he couldn't have believed would happen.

"A lot of people tried to talk about the times I didn't get in, but those times, we had other Vikings that had gone in: Gary Zimmerman went in, 'Big' Randall McDaniel went in, 'Little Muscle' Johnny Randle went in, then Chris Doleman went in," said the wide receiver, who was voted in Saturday.
