If You Could Bring Back One Vikings Player, Who Would It Be?

EDIT - Great topic by kcskol, so to the front page it goes! Discuss, everybody! - Chris

I was watching the videos of the Vikings five best plays in the Metrodome, and it reminded me of how much I loved seeing Cris Carter on the field.  It got me to thinking, "Which former Viking (in their prime) would I most want to bring back to this year's team?"

Of the guys I had the pleasure of watching, I thought of Chris Doleman, John Randle, Keith Millard (in his one or two fabulous years), Joey Browner, Gary Zimmerman, Randy Moss (oh boy, this one kind of hurts) and Randall McDaniel.  The Vikings also had a string of really, really good centers through the years.  I think the most instant positional upgrade would be Browner at safety -- though Birk at center could be argued too (prior centers were just as talented, if not more so, but perhaps a bit undersized for today's game).  The biggest game changer would, in my mind, be Moss.

That said, I find myself most wanting to see Cris Carter back in purple and making those wonderous leaping/diving/one-handed catches.  I miss his ability to make highlight reel catches each and every game.  He was fun to watch, and he was a leader in the locker room.  He might not fill the biggest need or offer the greatest on-field impact, but he's the one I'd most like to see out there.  Who's your pick?
