William Joe Carter (July 23, 1909 – December 22, 1991) was an American football wide receiver in the National Football League. He played eight seasons for the Philadelphia Eagles (1933–1940). He graduated North Dallas High School and attended Southern Methodist University.


A 6'1", 208 pound end, Carter led the National League in receiving in 1934 and finished 6th in 1937 and 3rd in 1938.[1]
