Sanders agrees to rejoin Ravens

OWINGS MILLS -- Deion Sanders has agreed in principle on a one-year, $1.5 million contract to rejoin the Baltimore Ravens, pending him passing a physical. The seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback could earn as much as $3 million to $4 million depending on how much action he sees.

Sanders ended a three-year retirement last season and registered three interceptions, the second most on the team. He had a touchdown return against the Buffalo Bills. He missed seven games with toe, foot and hamstring injuries, and didn't finish two others.

Sanders, who turns 38 in August, underwent toe surgery after the season and Friday told reporters in his hometown of Fort Myers, Fla.,: "I feel damn good."

Sanders added that he has been working out twice a day and that an announcement is set for Monday.
Sanders would likely split duties with Dale Carter, 35, who missed all of last season with a blood clot in his lungs.

They would form the oldest nickel tandem in league history. Between them, they have been selected to 11 Pro Bowls.

Sanders is a former NFL Defensive Player of the Year earmarked for future Hall of Fame status.
