Carter was drafted in the fourth round of the 2000 NFL Draft by the Vikings, where he played three seasons before logging a year with the Jets. Then, the Steelers scooped him up in 2004, and he remained in the black and gold, making 22 starts across six seasons in the Steel City. From there, Carter played one more year with the Chargers in 2010.
And while Carter's career may not boast any Hall-of-Fame stats or metrics, there's no doubt he played a role in those winning Steelers teams — and there's even less doubt he's incredibly thankful for the opportunity.
Throughout the video, Carter digs into the Steelers' rich, winning tradition, talking about their "blue-collar" approach and their sense of "family." I browsed his timeline a bit on Twitter, and yeah ... he didn't return to Minneapolis, East Rutherford or San Diego to cut a similar video for the other teams he played for throughout his 11-year professional career.
There was also this, a follow-up from Carter in which he's absolutely hyped on the steps in front of Heinz Field.
Good to see that energy and passion never left:
