John Carney kicked in the NFL for 23 years from 1988 to 2010.
A graduate of Notre Dame, he began his kicking journey in 1987 with the Cincinnati Bengals before being released prior to the start of the season. 1988 is when he saw his first official NFL game action with Tampa.
In 1990, he signed a contract with the San Diego Chargers, where he would remain for 11 seasons. After his time was up with the Chargers, he would go on to play 6 seasons with the Saints (01-06) and then finish his career with Jacksonville, the New York Giants and then back with the Saints before retiring in 2010.
He's currently fifth all-time on the NFL career scoring list (2,044 points) and was the last remaining player from the 1980's still active in professional football.
On this episode of the podcast, John shares when his kicking journey began, whether he could still kick for an NFL team today at the age of 54, how his faith in Christ took shape, kicking at Notre Dame, and embracing his role today as a mentor to the next generation.
