Broncos, Titans, Patriots consider waiver claim

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ESPN.com news services

The Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots are seriously considering making a waiver claim on Deion Sanders today in order to block the Raiders from acquiring the cornerback, ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports.

The Redskins placed Sanders on waivers Monday, one day after Sanders disclosed that his lawyer and the Raiders had discussed bringing Sanders out of retirement to help Oakland's injury-depleted secondary.

Teams have until 4 p.m. ET today to make a claim on Sanders and face no cap liability in doing so. They can simply put him on the retired reserve list, which the Broncos, Titans or Patriots probably would do if they decided to make a claim.

Sanders said in a radio interview Monday night that the Packers also have shown interest in him coming out of retirement.

Waiver claims are made in inverse order of standing, so the Broncos, Titans and Patriots would have a chance to block the Raiders (10-5).

In an interview with Westwood One's Jim Gray during halftime of the radio broadcast of the Steelers-Bucs game Monday night, Sanders said that the Packers also were interested in him returning. The Packers (12-3) have a better record than the Raiders, however, so Oakland almost certainly would put in a claim before the Packers.

Beautiful move by the Chargers. the press is making it seem as though it was a defensive move ... so none of these teams lined up to claim him would have to face him in the playoffs.

Maybe, but I think there are others out there who don't mind sticking it to "The Clown" a little when they can. :)
