Retired NFL wide receiver Cris Carter came under fire this week, when video footage surfaced of Carter encouraging incoming NFL rookies to find a “fall guy” willing to go to jail in their stead.

However, a new report now alleges that Carl Baynes, a childhood friend of Carter’s and current live-in omelette chef for the former Viking, has admitted to wearing a “full-body Cris Carter suit” and delivering the speech himself without Carter’s permission or knowledge.


Baynes also forcefully added that Carter was “in the Bahamas or Vegas or something” at the time.

In an utterly unrelated story, Baynes has agreed to take meetings this week with Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, and Jonny Manziel.
