Rams tell Carter he can skip visit

Friday, March 8, 2002

At least for now, the St. Louis Rams have scrapped plans to meet with free agent wide receiver Cris Carter, venting frustration over the longtime Minnesota Viking's inability to come to town as scheduled.

"He supposedly got tied up in Cleveland" while visiting this week with the Browns, Rams coach Mike Martz said. "So we'll just move on. We had a lot of things set up, and a lot of people made plans for this visit."

St. Louis canceled the visit after Carter called the Rams to say he would be delayed, affecting at least three Rams coaches and four players Martz said had arranged their schedules for Carter's visit. Rams quarterback Kurt Warner was scheduled to have dinner with Carter on Wednesday evening.
