Deion Sanders not jobless for long after leaving NFL Network

Deion Sanders not jobless for long after leaving NFL Network

Hall of Famer Deion Sanders left NFL Network Tuesday, but he quickly found a new job at a competitor. 

Sanders announced Wednesday that with his next move, he'd be joining Barstool Sports. 

The eight-time Pro-Bowler and two-time Super Bowl champion reportedly left NFL Network after he was asked to take a pay cut when his contract expired. He refused, so his deal was not renewed. 


Sanders has also expressed interest in coaching, claiming he'll be the head coach of a college football team by 2021. That may still happen for the all-time great cornerback, but it looks like he'll be busy with his new gig in the meantime. 

Controversial statements about NFL players foregoing the 2020 season over concerns with the coronavirus pandemic put Sanders in headlines last week. Though it is unclear whether those comments played a part in Sanders' departure from NFL Network, it also seems it didn't hinder his other job prospects.

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn tests positive for COVID-19

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn tests positive for COVID-19

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) -- It didn't take long for "Hard Knocks: Los Angeles" to reveal its first major surprise of the season as Los Angeles Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said he had coronavirus during the offseason.

Lynn's admission came less than five minutes into Tuesday's season premiere of the show on HBO and produced by NFL Films. He was answering questions about protocols put in place during a videoconference call with his players.

"I can't promise you you're not going to get infected. I got infected," said Lynn, who has recovered from the virus.

Lynn's experience set the tone for the hour-long show in which the theme was how the Chargers and Rams were taking steps to protect players. The episode also showed the testing procedure for players, which include nasal swab and blood antibody tests.

Players, coaches and some team staff members are tested daily for at least the first two weeks of training camps. It can be reduced to every other day after that depending on the rate of positive results. The league and NFL Players Association continue to discuss how long to continue daily tests.


Lynn -- who is in his fourth season as Chargers coach -- said in a conversation with team psychologist Dr. Herb Martin that he had a slight cough and body aches. He didn't decide to get tested until watching a golf tournament when one of the competitors had to withdraw after testing positive. That golfer had symptoms similar to Lynn's.

"I never even would have known it and probably got other people infected," Lynn said.

Lynn later said that the emotional toll was worse than the physical effects.

"The first thing, you feel a little bit like an outcast. That was probably harder for me than the sickness," he said. "I was feeling like, `I can't go here or I'm going to infect this person.' When you're used to fixing the problem, now I'm the problem."

The Chargers are one of the few teams to not have any player on the covid/reserve list or have anyone opt out from playing this season.

The episode later showed Rams rookie linebacker Terrell Lewis self quarantining and talking to teammates via videoconference after testing positive.
