Canton, OH (NNCNOW.com) --- Former Viking Cris Carter and ex-Packer Dave Robinson were among seven inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night in Canton, Ohio at Fawcett Stadium in front of 120 hall members.

It took Carter six tries to be inducted after finishing his 16-season career with 1,101 catches, 13,899 yards, and 130 touchdowns.

"I appreciate the process you have to go through to get to be a Hall of Famer. To be able to join these men on this stage in football heaven is the greatest day of my life," Carter said.

Robinson won three Super Bowls with the Packers and Vince Lombardi, the 12th inductee to be coached by Lombardi. He was also a member of the NFL's All-Decade team and a three-time Pro Bowl selection.

"This is the biggest day of the 21st century for the Robinson family," he said.

Carter and Robinson were joined by Jonathan Ogden, Larry Allen, Bill Parcells, Curley Culp, and Warren Sapp in the 2013 class.
