Deion Sanders: announcement on return is imminent

OWINGS MILLS – Deion Sanders' return to the Baltimore Ravens could be decided as soon as Monday, according to the seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback.

"Three days," Sanders told the Fort Myers News-Press. "You'll hear something in three days."

Sanders, who turns 38 in August, ended a three-year retirement last season. He missed seven games with foot, toe and hamstring problems and failed to finish two others.

Yet, he still finished second on the team with three interceptions, returning one for a touchdown against the Buffalo Bills.

Sanders said Friday that his health is "wonderful" after recovering from left foot surgery.

"I feel good," Sanders said. "I feel damn good."

Sanders played last season under a one-year, $1.5 million contract, and the Ravens are in the final stages of negotiations with his agent, Eugene Parker.

In an injury-plagued season where he was rarely healthy, Sanders registered eight tackles.

"It was one of the funnest years that I've ever had," Sanders said. "I played with a plethora of guys who were like my brothers."

As he repeatedly stated last year, Sanders is unconcerned about tarnishing the legacy of what most league observers consider to be a Hall of Fame career.

"When you start to be afraid in life, you'll never be successful," Sanders said. "How can someone erase what's already written?"

NOTE: Miami Dolphins coach Nick Saban is reportedly interested in interviewing Ravens director of pro personnel George Kokinis to replace departed general manager Rick Spielman. The personnel job is unlikely to carry a general manager title, though.

Kokinis worked with Saban from 1991 to 1994 with the Cleveland Browns.
