EXCERPTED FROM SI
November 13, 1989

GIVEN HIS obnoxious, thundering-rap rep, Deion Sanders has bent over backward to ingratiate himself with his new teammates on the Falcons, as he did with the Yankees. The punt return for a touchdown right out of the box helped. His gifts of Gucci watches to the 10 other Falcons on the return squad didn't hurt his cause, either.
