Deion Sanders starred in a new Super Bowl commercial tonight that featured him being drafted #1 overall by our very own Kansas City Chiefs.
The comercial featured the Hall of Famer deciding to get back into football. Sanders shows up at the NFL combine, complete with an afro wig and a mustache. When asked for his name at registration, Deion calls himself “Leon.”
When asked for his last name, Sanders replies “Sandcastle.”
After performing well at the combine and running a 4.2 40-yard dash, Sandcastle begins to get some buzz. By the time the actual draft rolls around, he is considered the best player in the draft.
And of course, he is selected by the Kansas City Chiefs.
Covering a Super Bowl is a pretty big logistical task,” Phelps said. “The basic outline for what we did when the Seahawks were in the Super Bowl in 2006 spun out of a plan I put together at the end of the 1993 season when the Joe Montana-led Chiefs were in the AFC championship game against the Bills. It looked like wasted effort when the Bills beat the Chiefs, but I pulled it out of an old file and gave it a new life with the Seahawks.”
Signed by the Kansas City Chiefs as a free agent running back, the Colgate University and Hazleton Area High School graduate began his NFL journey with an outstanding preseason. He ran for 98 yards against Seattle in the third exhibition game, and followed it up with 99 yards against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in the preseason finale, cementing his spot on the Chiefs’ 53-man roster.
With the only fullback in camp injured for much of the preseason, Eachus also started to turn heads with his blocking abilities, and became the team’s primary blocking back for Jamaal Charles.
