Sanders punts his CBS gig

No replacement has been announced

NEW YORK — Deion Sanders, a star player in both the National Football League and Major League Baseball, has resigned as a studio analyst for NFL games on CBS.

CBS reportedly declined to give Sanders the huge salary increase he was seeking to put him in the category of Terry Bradshaw and Howie Long, his NFL-analyst counterparts at Fox.

One of CBS’ objections was that Fox’s pregame show draws far more viewers than the Eye’s “NFL Today,” which features Sanders and three other NFL commentators: Jim Nantz, Boomer Esiason and Dan Marino.

CBS has not yet announced a replacement for Sanders.
