DEION LEAVING FRISCO? SEGA GIVES HIM INCENTIVE TO STAY
Published January 24, 1995
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).
