DEION LEAVING FRISCO? SEGA GIVES HIM INCENTIVE TO STAY

     Today's MIAMI HERALD is reporting that Deion Sanders might
retire from football if the 49ers win.  Sanders has confided to
at least two friends that getting a Super Bowl ring "will leave
him nothing left to accomplish in football."  Sanders' mother is
reportedly trying to convince him to play one more season -- with
the Dolphins (Dan Le Batard, MIAMI HERALD, 1/24).  Sega's new
contract with Sanders to develop a new video football game and be
a spokesperson for the company "has just become more lucrative"
for Sanders -- if he stays with the 49ers.  People familiar with
the deal say that Sanders will get "substantially more money
overall if he stays with the 49ers -- perhaps twice as much."
The sources say that staying with the team can make him an
estimated $2.5M, but only $1M if he leaves.  Sega reportedly
"engaged in a bidding war with a rival video company" for Sanders
(Rory O'Conner, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 1/23).
