Deion Sanders Wants to Play for the Ravens 9:45 AM

Aug 16, 2004 9:45 am US/Eastern
Baltimore, MD (WJZ) Published reports say Deion Sanders wants to make his NFL comeback with the Baltimore Ravens.

League sources say Sanders would like to back a comeback as the Ravens' nickel back.

Sanders turned 37 years old this month, he hasn't played in three seasons.

Sanders is reportedly good friends with Ray Lewis and Corey Fuller.

For the last few years, Sanders has served as an analyst for CBS on the weekly "NFL Today" program.

Would it be wise for him to come back? I loved watching Sanders kill opponents and while it would be a great story if he could come back and make one of the best defenses even better -- it also would be a major shame to see him come back and tarnish his career by not being his best. He's been out of action several years now. It pains me to see today's younger NFL fans looking at what a joke Emmitt Smith has become. As much as we all hated seeing Barry Sanders hang up his spikes in the prime of his career -- it also was a pretty amazing way to exit and salvage a great image of himself.

I figured this was a cheesy attention grabber title and Deion got another announcing job. Guess I was wrong, man, Deion needs to learn to let go.

he sucked for the reskins, or at least for how much they paid him. and i doubt he'd make the ravens any better :-t

He could still be a servicible, if not a stellar, nickle back. Problem is I don't know that he still has the speed to cover. He was having minor injury problems at the end of his career, shins splints???. Besides, isn't he the coach for the Falcons?

He'd probably be the best nickel back in the league. He still claims he could roll out of bed and cover if he wanted to. I'd love to see him play again, just no more covering Randy Moss.

I saw him last night with his wife selling some exercixe machine on an infomercial. I don't think you can go from infomercials to the NFL. just an opinion.
