Deion Sanders To Be Honored At Halftime Of Falcons-Panthers Game

After being inducted in to the NFL Hall of Fame in August, former Atlanta Falcons CB Deion Sanders will be honored at halftime of this weekend's game against the Carolina Panthers

The president of the Hall of Fame, Steve Perry, will introduce Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who will present Sanders with his Hall of Fame ring.

In five seasons in Atlanta after being drafted out of Florida State, Sanders became known for his flashy "Neon Deion" nickname as well as his on the field exploits. He was the rare to CB who was also a household name, and he was one of the last two-sport athletes in the professional ranks, splitting time as an OF for the New York Yankees and Atlanta Braves.

He made three Pro Bowls and two All-Pro teams with the Falcons, and his jaw-dropping athleticism allowed him to score touchdowns on interceptions, receptions, punt and kickoff returns.

Sanders, now an analyst at the NFL Network, was enshrined as the eighth member of the Falcons Ring of Honor in a ceremony last season.
