Vikings legend and Hall of Famer Cris Carter is in the Twin Cities this weekend. He’s doing events with the Salvation Army, a cause near-and-dear to his heart, and will be at Sunday’s Vikings-Saints game for Legends Weekend.

Our Darren ‘Doogie’ Wolfson caught up with Carter and picked his brain on the 5-4 Vikings, QB Josh Dobbs, WR Jordan Addison, and more.
