Cris Carter the hypocrite...

Recently, Cris Carter has spoken out about how the Browns should cut Josh Gordon for his own 'good'. It harkens back to Carter's own dangerous path before the Eagles released him.

Now that is well and good, except that his comments on the Eagles in April were beyond ridiculous. Carter's tweet;

@DeseanJackson10 congrats Bro.Praying this is the 2nd biggest mistake @Eagles made in their history by cutting their best WR. #2ndchances

I know the implications of Jackson's release and Carters are different, but to call Carter's release a mistake is... deplorable.

Especially when Carter makes such statements like this one at his hall of fame induction;

"Buddy Ryan drafted me, and he tried to grow me up in the league. What Buddy Ryan did was the best thing that ever happened for me when he cut me and told me I couldn’t play for his football team. But he told me a story. He told me the night before, he went home and talked to his wife. And he asked his wife what he should do, And his wife told him, ‘Don’t cut Cris Carter. He’s going to do something special with his life.’ So Buddy Ryan, and his lovely wife, I thank you. You’re going into the Hall with me."

Should the Brown's keep Gordon amongst these issues? It will be up to their management to decide if they can get him the help that he needs. But, do we need to hear more from Cris Carter? I think we all know the answer to that.
