A lawyer for Cris Carter said the former Ohio State wide receiver has agreed to perform community service during a one-year period to avoid criminal charges for accepting money from sports agents while still in college.

"It was decided Cris had come clean, had told what he knew, and this was a workable kind of solution," said the lawyer, Robert Berry of Boston.

Carter, who plays for the National Football League's Philadelphia Eagles, allegedly accepted a $5,000 interest-free loan and payments totaling nearly $1,800 from agents Norby Walters and Lloyd Bloom.
