SANDERS' CONTRACT APPROVED -- AFTER GOOD POLICY MOVES
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).
