TAGLIABUE APPROVES SANDERS CONTRACT WITH 49ERS
Published September 29, 1994
"Despite plenty of backroom mumbling from the NFL teams jilted by Deion Sanders," NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue approved the 49ers contract with the All-Pro cornerback. Tagliabue stated there was no evidence of Nike having any involvement in the deal. Tagliabue: "There is an absence of linkage with any such organization" (Len Pasquarelli, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 9/29). Tagliabue admitted the NFL is "powerless to police sponsors if they act independently of clubs" (Clark Judge, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 9/29)
