He was a four-time Pro Bowl selection with the Chiefs and a three-time arrestee, but the Broncos felt his talent outweighed his off-field misbehavior. He was offered a four-year, $22.8 million deal with Denver and became the NFL's most expensive defensive back. After an unimpressive first season, Carter was suspended the entire 2000 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy for the fourth time. He was released in the middle of the 2001 season.
