Former Minnesota Vikings All-Pro wide receiver Cris Carter will be hosting a podcast that features interviews with some of the best current and former NFL pass-catchers.

Anyone who spent any time with Cris Carter on the field during his NFL playing days with the Minnesota Vikings can tell you the dude likes to talk.

But the thing about Carter was that he backed up his chatter on the field by making his opponents look silly week in and week out.

Following his Hall of Fame career in the NFL, the former Vikings receiver has been able to find success in a different field of work as a sports analyst. Since retiring from football, Carter has worked for several notable television networks, including HBO, ESPN, and FS1.

Former Minnesota Vikings legend Cris Carter signs a deal with Blue Wire Podcasts

It’s been a little while since the last time Carter was a contributing member of the sports media world, but recently, it was revealed that the former Minnesota receiver is going to be coming out with his own podcast.

Starting in July, Carter will be hosting a weekly podcast titled “WR1” that features interviews with some of the best current and former NFL receivers. The show will be a part of the Blue Wire Podcast network and it will be presented by WynnBet.

There will be a total of eight episodes and the former Vikings legend has already mentioned that he would like to sit down and chat with several big-name pass-catchers, including Justin Jefferson, D.K. Metcalf, Antonio Brown, and Marvin Harrison.

Being that he’s a former player, Carter should be able to have some one-of-a-kind conversations with his guests. He can ask Jefferson about breaking all of Randy Moss‘ rookie records, he can ask Metcalf what was going through his head when he was chasing down Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker last season, and he can ask Brown, well, he can ask him a lot of questions (that might have to be a two-part conversation).

Speaking of Moss, don’t be surprised if the greatest NFL receiver of all time makes an appearance on Carter’s new podcast. Those two probably have plenty of stories that Minnesota fans would love to hear.
