Cris Carter questions Sidney Rice’s offseason work habits
In 2009, Vikings receiver Sidney Rice had a breakout season that he attributed in part to his offseason workouts with former Vikings receiver Cris Carter. But Carter said today that he’s frustrated that Rice isn’t continuing those workouts this summer.
Speaking to Chip Scoggins of the Star Tribune, Carter said he’s not sure why Rice isn’t attending the intense summer workouts that Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald is hosting in Minnesota.
“I don’t know,” Carter said. “You have to ask him. I don’t know what it’s like to have one good year and then disappear. I don’t know what it’s like. That’s on him. I really don’t know. . . . If I had that kind of impact on him he should have been here today.”
Carter bristled when asked if he’s mad at Rice for not working out with him.
“I don’t look mad do I?” Carter said. “I don’t get mad about kids coming or not coming. . . . But Sidney is not here so I guarantee he’s not getting no better today.”
