Deion Sanders attempted suicide while playing for the Reds
Former Red Deion Sanders was on the Dan Patrick Show this morning. They began talking about on-field football topics and eventually shifted to the Jevon Belcher situation. Sanders said he was suicidal at one time and many players in the NFL have similar problems.
Sanders said that he ran a car off the highway in Cincinnati. He said he was 3-4 the night before for the Reds. “I was in the midst of my first divorce. The only [people] I thought loved me were my kids. And they were stripped away from me.”
