PLEADED GUILTY: In U.S. District Court in Chicago, Philadelphia Eagle wide receiver CRIS CARTER, 22, to charges of mail fraud and obstruction of justice, all of which stemmed from a federal investigation of illegal payments made to college players by sports agents. Carter, who will be sentenced on March 27, faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine. Last month Carter was indicted along with agents Norby Walters and Lloyd Bloom, who were charged with mail fraud, racketeering and conspiracy to commit extortion, and Los Angeles-based agent David Lueddeke, who was charged with perjury and obstruction of justice. The other defendants are awaiting trial.
