Motives like what? I don't get what he can really gain from a couple kids...All these players look up to deion, and did growing up playing football, I love the fact that he interacts with alot of different players and works with guys...There is no telling how much he helps those guys you named, and being one of the best DB's of all time how could you as an up and coming athlete not want to take what advice you can from him...Deion helps alot of athletes because I'm sure alot of athletes reach out to him, it's not as if he does it to promote himself because he has a million other ways to do that alot better...And the recognition, I doubt that also, I just know if Deion is willing to give some advice or work out a couple guys more power to him...Thats like Barry Sanders hanging around and mentoring the top RB's, or Reggie White for DT's, he certainly doesn't have to, but I'm glad he does it none the less.
If he can just work with Pacman on technique at the corner position, that would be a huge boost...I just don't see what other motives he could have behind the mentoring thing other then helping young guys out on and off the field.
