SANDERS SIGNS WITH 49ERS AMID SALARY CAP COMPLAINTS
Published September 15, 1994
49ers officials "may have to answer plenty of questions" from the NFL's Management Council once the league starts reviewing details of Deion Sander's one-year, $1.25M contract. League officials said yesterday that they anticipate several teams to request that the contract be scrutinized for any "under- the-table" deals made to circumvent the salary cap. Falcons president Taylor Smith questioned the deal and said "bitterly" that the Falcons had offered Sanders more than double the 49ers bid. Dolphins GM Eddie Jones: "Let's just say they have been very, very resourceful" (Len Pasquarelli, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 9/15). 49ers President Carmen Policy added that the questions of other teams over the validity of the contract "concerns me" (Clark Judge, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 9/15).
