NFL superstar Deion “Dee” Sanders is still dealing with some health issues, but he says he’s not in a place to retire.
Sanders, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, says he hasn’t made up his mind about retiring.
“I don’t know yet, but I’ll let the doctors and trainers and the coaches make that decision for me,” Sanders told reporters Friday.
Sanders said he’s had no setbacks and no setbacks, despite dealing with health issues throughout his career.
“We’re all dealing with the same issues and the same challenges.
And I’ve been through them all and I know the challenges that I’m going through,” Sanders said.
Sanders played in a total of seven NFL seasons, starting five.
He had two career 1,000-yard seasons.
Sanders was a four-time first-team All-Pro selection and a two-time NFC Pro Bowl.
He was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004.
Sanders spent his first three seasons with the Los Angeles Rams.
In 2009, he became the first quarterback to start every game in his first four seasons in the NFL.
Sanders has been the subject of some speculation in recent weeks.
In the past, he’s been linked to a potential return to the NFL after his career is over.
In late September, the Rams announced Sanders would not be returning for his fifth season in Los Angeles.
Sanders also played a role in the Rams’ playoff victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2012 AFC championship game.
