Luckily, we are more than prepared for such a fiasco but, I seriously doubt he'll be causing any problems anytime soon. Yes, he's an idiot but, he knows what is on the line and Deion is a good mentor to help straighten him out a bit. All should be fine.
Oh I think pacman's going to do well and keep himself out of trouble but I don't think Neon Deon is the perfect mentor for an already troubled kid. But I like pacman and think he'll be a great corner.

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.

I don't know anything as a fact, I'm speculating. The Noel Devine situation was very bizarre for those who read about it, and I imagine once Devine is in the pros (or not) a few years from now, we'll know more about that chapter of his life and what Deion's involvement was like.
