Deion Sanders to make comeback?
Deion Sanders is expected to arrive at Raiders camp today to discuss joining the team for the playoffs, a team source said.
Sanders, 35, last played in 2000 for the Washington Redskins and has been working as a CBS studio analyst for the past two seasons. He made seven Pro Bowls as a cornerback and won two Super Bowls -- with the 49ers after the 1994 season and with the Dallas Cowboys the following year -- in 12 seasons.
``I may come back to a playoff team,'' he said on CBS. ``I've made contact, I have spoken to my attorney, we have spoken to the Oakland Raiders.''
Raiders senior assistant Bruce Allen said, ``No, I can't say it's false. Yes, he did say that, didn't he? I think he's always liked the Raiders. I think he's having some fun imagining the possibilities. Everything is possible. Earlier in the week, we were short on corners.''
The team source said the word last week was that Sanders would join the team if it clinched a playoff appearance Sunday. The Raiders won their third consecutive AFC West championship by beating Denver 28-16 and can clinch the conference's top seed -- and a week off and home games throughout the playoffs -- by beating the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday.
i'd be interested to see if deion's toe is completely healed and he has his speed back, or if he's still a step slow like he was when he retired.
if he's still a step slow.....forget it buddy. don't bother.
