CANTON, Ohio (AP) - With a forceful and emotion-filled speech, Cris Carter has become the seventh and final inductee from the Class of 2013 to enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night.

Carter mentioned dozens of people in his life who were "going into the Hall of Fame with me tonight," as he followed Jonathan Ogden, Dave Robinson, Larry Allen, Bill Parcells, Curley Culp and Warren Sapp in being inducted.

More than 120 hall members, a record, returned for the 50th anniversary celebration of the shrine.

"I appreciate the process you have to go through to get to be a Hall of Famer," said Carter, who had perhaps the best hands of any receiver the NFL has seen. "To be able to join these men on this stage in football heaven is the greatest day of my life."
