As a nickel back he could be great. He's not saying he would come back and be a shutdown corner again. I think he could still cover the #3-4 WR on most teams or be the second man in double coverage.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Deion is the man. I think he would make a great nickel back at this point. From what i have read he knows he can't shut down most #1st one on one. But with his experiece and ability in the nickel zone or on a #3.

yeah that could be fun to watch. maybe even a punt returns!!

Ah, so that's why Deion was in Madden 04...I was always wondering.

Why do these guys feel the need to come back after being out of it for so long? I will say though that he probably does have the skills to be able to come back and make an impact on this team, but not like he used to be. Personally, I don't want to see a "step slower" Primetime getting torched for TDs.

Two things are for sure: Deion LOVES $$$ and the spotlight. That's all this is about, imo...

12 team, H2H, hyper-performance, keeper (5)

Start 9: QB, 1/2RB, 2/3/4WR, 1/2TE, K, D/ST

Keepers: Deuce, Rudi, CJ, Plax, Foster

yeah, he's always seemed like one of those athletes who has too much natural ability to completely suck. i think he knows his limitations, and if the speed is still there, then i think he could be very good (idunno about the best though)
It doesn't need to be in good taste, so long as it tastes good

Some of the local sports talk here in Baltimore.....say Raven sources(Not sure who they are)are saying this is gonna happen!!!

Deion is good friends with Ray Lewis & Cory Fuller and has been doing the Ray Lewis off-season regiment along with Jamal Lewis & several other un-named NFL players(not Ravens) all along and When Ravens off-season pick-up Dale Carter was lost for season with injury in mini-camps Ray Lewis started wooing Deion to take his spot!!!

It is only to be a nickel back, not shut down corner, and as long as they don't have to give him half of what the Skins did, I think he could be a huge pick-up......even if he lost a step or 2 from his 4.2 speed, he'd still be faster than half of the NFL, plus I'd love to see him returning kicks again!!!

Sorry I didn't see this thread until after I started another!

He wont be as good a cover man he used to be, and he could never tackle in the first place. Why can't some players just stay retired? The young ones who would see him play now will think he sucked and always did suck. Im afraid the same thing may have happened with Micheal Jordan, who tarnished his career with the Wizards thing, although he wasn't awful in Washington. Also, what does the Ray Lewis offseason training program consist of? Obstruction of justice and cocaine deals?

Please, please, let him return punts too. I'd love to see him get his block knocked off.
