Deion Sanders says he's playing in Pro Bowl

It looks like Hall of Fame defensive back Deion Sanders will make an appearance at the 2014 Pro Bowl and not only as a spectator or commentator.

Sanders tweeted that he will in fact "suit up" for the game -- for whatever that's worth.

"Ladies and Gentlemen I am officially announcing 'I WILL SUIT UP IN HAWAII Please let @JerryRice know that a real captain leads by example!" Sanders tweeted.

It could be a crypitc message considering that Sanders didn't say he'd actually play in the game. But with the Pro Bowl falling out of popularity with the fans, any attention it can get, the NFL will try to capitalize on.
