Deion Sanders Joins the Ravens


As the third cornerback on a Ravens defense that has its sights set on history, Sanders believes there is no better place for him. Had it not been for Dale Carter, who was supposed to be the team’s corner this season, developing a blood clot and Sanders falling out with CBS, where he was an on-air personality, this situation would have never materialized.

“As I went through the first two weeks of the conversation, and I had to think about why a player would want to come back and play, I had to think about myself in the last two years in my career, and why I wanted to continue to play the game of football,” said Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome, a Hall of Fame tight end. “I think the one driving factor that led me to play the last two years, and I think the a driving factor that Deion had put in the forefront of his own mind is the opportunity to play in the Super Bowl.

“If you can wake up everyday and go out there and work out, knowing that you have the chance to go out and play in the ultimate game, then it really gives you an incentive to do it.,” Newsome added.

Let's hope that Sanders gets a chance to play in the Superbowl this year!!
