Monroe's career highlight came during Super Bowl XIX versus the Miami Dolphins when he caught a 33-yard touchdown pass from Joe Montana. He died in 1989 of a suspected accidental valium overdose, while attempting to resurrect his football career in the CFL, and while fighting alcoholism.

The annual Carl Monroe Golf Tournament is held to benefit students of William C. Overfelt High School in San Jose, CA, his alma mater.
