At a press conference, Sanders criticized the Dolphins for not making him an offer. Sanders: "If you really want to pursue me, you know my agent is Eugene Parker. Give him a call." When asked what the number was, Sanders replied: "Money. 1-800-MONEY" (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 7/25). In Atlanta, Len Pasquarelli reports that Marlins GM DAVE DOMBROWSKI tried to trade for Sanders last week, which could have enabled Marlins/Dolphins Owner WAYNE HUIZENGA to also sign Sanders to play football (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 7/25).
