Deion Sanders played in the NFL for the Falcons, 49ers, Cowboys, and Redskins. He also played MLB for Yankees, Braves, Reds, and Giants.
Deion Sanders, a 12-year NFL veteran who is considered by many to be one of the greatest cornerbacks of all time, was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection and is the only person in professional sports history to play in both the World Series (1992) and the Super Bowl (1994, 1995). A master punt returner, he holds the NFL record with 18 touchdowns scored on returns - punts (6), kickoffs (3), fumble recoveries (1) and interceptions (8). Deion Sanders finished his career with 22 touchdowns (including playoffs) and 49 interceptions. He is second in NFL history with eight career interception returns for touchdowns, trailing only Hall of Famer Ken Houston, who had nine. Sanders is also the only player in Super Bowl history to have both a pass reception and interception. Deion Sanders was the fifth overall draft pick by the Falcons in 1989, where he played five seasons (1989-93). He spent one season (1994) with the 49ers, helping the team win the Super Bowl and was named defensive player of the year despite joining the team late because of baseball. Sanders spent the next five seasons (1995-99) with the Cowboys before finishing his career with the Redskins in 2000. In 1996, he played regularly on both offense and defense for the Cowboys, becoming the NFL's first two-way starter since Chuck Bednarik in 1962.
A two-time All-American at Florida State, Deion Sanders played on teams that won four bowl games and was also a standout in baseball and track & field. He was a member of the Seminoles College World Series baseball team, and qualified for the Olympic Trials as a sprinter in 1988.
