Deion Sanders in the Pro Bowl?

Deion Sanders was an athletic marvel, the kind of player who shut down passing games for years at a time in the NFL while simultaneously becoming a respectable baseball player. He hasn't played since 2005, but if he has his way, there will be some Prime Time at the Pro Bowl. Sanders and Jerry Rice are both taking part in a draft that will divvy up the Pro Bowl players into two rosters, and Sanders tweeted Monday that he plans on suiting up at the event. Sanders disguised himself as ''Leon Sandcastle'' and was picked first overall in a fictional NFL draft in a commercial for last year's Super Bowl, but one would think that real life wouldn't be quite so forgiving.
