SANDERS' CONTRACT APPROVED -- AFTER GOOD POLICY MOVES
Published September 20, 1994
The NFL's management council approved Deion Sanders' contract with the 49ers, "thereby silencing critics of the signing." The announcement came after 49ers President Carmen Policy, "infuriated by reports of at least two clubs -- believed to be Dallas and Atlanta -- questioning the legitimacy of the move, contacted NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue on Monday morning and asked the league to move expeditiously in reviewing the contract" (Clark Judge, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 9/20). At halftime on "Monday Night Football," Sanders responded to the rumor that Nike is "paying part of his contract" with the 49ers: "I really can't wait to see the check. I really don't understand how people can make accusations like that" (ABC, 9/19).
