The Vikings’ rookies are in Aurora, Ohio this week for the NFL Rookie Symposium. The week-long orientation focuses on NFL history, total wellness, experience and professionalism.
On Tuesday, former Vikings wide receiver and Hall of Famer Cris Carter was one of the guest speakers. He typically has a good presentation, and here’s a short clip from 2010.
Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and cornerback Jabari Price posted their appreciation for Carter on social media after he spoke.
“#Hometeam Chris [sic] Carter and I catching up once again.. Many life lessons learned from this guy,” Bridgewater said on Twitter.
"I’m glad we have a group of guys here that came back and shared their stories," Bridgewater said on NFL Network this week. "It’s really touched me hearing guys say don’t let football become who you are because at some point the game is going to end. Those life lessons that guys have gone through, it sticks well with you."
"Learned a lot from Chris [sic] Carter today at the Rookie Symposium #Skol,” Price said on Twitter.
The rookies will get a few weeks to unwind after the symposium before the Vikings report to training camp on July 24.
