Deion Sanders tweets that he'll suit up for Pro Bowl Published: January 13, 2014

If his Twitter comments are any indication, Deion Sanders wants to suit up for the Pro Bowl.

Along with fellow Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, Sanders is a captain for the revamped Pro Bowl that will select its rosters via a two-day draft before the game Jan. 26.

The legendary defensive back may be 46 years old and eight years removed from playing an actually NFL game, but he still sent out a tweet midday on Monday announcing his intentions to suit up for the game.

"Ladies and Gentlemen I am officially announcing "I WILL SUIT UP IN HAWAII" Please let @JerryRice know that a real captain leads by example!," Sanders tweeted Monday.

Good luck, Deion, especially if you don't get Calvin Johnson on your team.
