Like Bo Jackson, Deion Sanders or to a lesser extent Brian Jordan of the Braves? Your thoughts?

I personally think the money has gotten too big for teams to risk allowing a guy to do such a thing.
When Bo/Deion/Brian Jordan were in there prime a star player was making 2 million a year (if they were one of the highest paid at their positions) - of course Deion at the end of his was starting to see the $5 million a season type money, but guys these days that are elite make $12 million+ per season.
I think IF you ever see it again it is more likely a Brian Jordan level talent that isn't "elite" at either sport they play. I think it is more likely if we see it again that it will be a PF that makes it to the NBA and the NFL as a TE.
The fact of the matter is, baseball has lost a LOT of appeal to the urban youth in America (which is sad as I'm a baseball fanatic) and a lot of elite athletes now grow up now playing basketball first and football second. It used to be baseball first, followed by whatever other sport was in season (football, basketball, track).
Yep - he plays backup QB right now for the noles
You know, FSU - Find Saban Understudies....(NOW University)
