"On Thursday, March 28 at 2:15 p.m. the Kansas City Chiefs will make the next rookie sensation - and star of NFL Network's Super Bowl XLVII advertisement - Leon Sandcastle (Deion Sanders) available to all local media outlets," the Chiefs press release said. (H/T RDOGuy for reporting the workout here.)
This is real. Deion Sanders is actually coming to Kansas City today, dressed up as Leon Sandcastle. I double checked with the Chiefs on that and, indeed, it's actually Deion Sanders coming to Kansas City. Hey, you never can be too sure.
Anyway, I'll be out there for the Sandcastle event today. I don't know what to expect but I'll be there. Follow @ArrowheadPride if you need your fix on Leon Sandcastle news this afternoon.
