CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Cris Carter has finished off the Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions Saturday night, the final member of the Class of 2013 to be enshrined.

The emotional Carter, an Ohio native, needed six tries to make the hall, even though he retired as the No. 2 career receiver behind Jerry Rice. He choked back tears talking about his mentor Reggie White during his speech after being presented by his son, Duron. Carter referred to his drinking problem while playing three years for the Eagles before being released.

Carter hooked on immediately with the Vikings and hooked onto nearly everything thrown his way. Known for his superb hands, Carter finished his 16-season career with 1,101 catches for 13,899 yards and 130 touchdowns.

He stressed his disappointment at not winning a title for Vikings fans; Carter is the only one of the seven new inductees without a Super Bowl championship ring.
