Ex-Titan Kevin Carter Will Become Sports Analyst
Starting in the fall, defensive end Kevin Carter will become an analyst for ESPNU covering a SEC preview show. Carter played for Florida from 1991-1994 and was a member of the Tennessee Titans from 2001-2004.
While he was in the NFL, Carter spent fourteen years with four different teams. Since 2001 he totaled 232 tackles, 100 of them were solo. Between 1995 and 2008 he racked up a total of 104 sacks between the St. Louis Rams, Tennessee Titans, Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While he was with the Titans he started all sixteen games every year totaling 64 games.
There is always a good possibility when a player plays that long in a professional sport that they will end up somewhere on television or the radio or writing for some paper. There are people that specifically go out and get degrees for this stuff (trust me I would know), and players get handed these positions because of their experiences. But Carter told reporters the other day that he has been drifting towards television for a while now.
“I love college football. I love SEC ball,” he said. “It’s really fun to come down memory lane and be involved with these young men that are making the SEC great today.”
He later acknowledged that it is a hard field to get into and he appreciates the opportunity to talk about the sport that he loves. “I thought about it as a possibility, but you never know how life is going to shake out. I’m fortunate. It’s a tough market to get into. It’s a crowded room. There are a lot of great broadcasters and ex-players that are capable of doing it.”
