Deion Sanders joins Barstool Sports

Douglas Defelice-USA TODAY Sports

Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders has vowed to become a college football head coach in 2021. Until that happens (if it does), Sanders will be spending time at Barstool Sports.

The move was announced on Wednesday. Sanders, who exited NFL Network reportedly after declining to take a pay cut, will join the independent operation that relishes periodically (or more often) poking a finger in the eye of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Sanders will have a podcast, make regular appearances on the Pardon My Take podcast, and also be part of a Sunday pregame show.

Sanders played for the Falcons, 49ers, Cowboys, Washington, and Ravens. He previously worked for CBS, reportedly leaving when he requested that his salary be doubled.

  1. Wow! He got himself a podcast. There’s something alot of people don’t have. The NFL Network is probably doing back flips. Dion, don’t let the door hit you in the backside on the way out.

  2. El Presidente is killing it over there. Barstool is quickly becoming the place to be in sports. Some other outlets should take some notes.

  3. Yeah, because Barstool Sports has a higher profile than NFL Network. It’s surprising that they can pay him more than the NFL because you have to go out of your way to even find Barstool Sports. Out of sight, out of mind.

  4. Good! He’ll be so much easier to avoid that way. Hopefully he’ll convince Michael Irvin to join him there.

  5. His media career is starting to look alot like his playing career..

    bouncing from gig to gig for money

  6. Apparently Dion decided he wanted to speak his own opinion rather than follow the network politically correct company line. Good for you Prime Time!

  7. I’m far from a Sanders fan, but for him this is an upgrade! Barstool Sports has a lot more going for them then the NFL Network. Well at least they did before this LOL.
