Deion Sanders pitches the Falcons on drafting both of his sons, which is where his NFL career began.

Deion Sanders once enthralled the population of Atlanta with his exciting play on the field, whether it was for the Atlanta Falcons or the Atlanta Braves.

Sanders hasn't played for the Falcons in 30 years (he was named First Team All-Pro in 1993), but he's become one of the city's most popular athletes.

Sanders wants his sons to have that same feeling in Atlanta, encouraging a Falcons scout to draft both of his sons, Shedeur and Shilo.

"We ain't coming back unless we bringing the Sanders boys to the A, both of them."

Rich Sanders (no connection) is the Falcons scout in the video with Sanders. Desmond Ridder has completed 65.4% 

of his throws for 1,073 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions (85.8 rating) in five starts for the Falcons, which Shedeur plays. 

The Falcons are 5-4 in games Ridder has started, but it is due to a strong rushing game and an excellent run-blocking offensive line.

Shilo is a graduate student with one more year of eligibility, while Shedeur is a junior who will be available for the NFL Draft following this season.

it remains to be seen whether Sanders keeps both of his sons at Colorado after this season, but the Buffaloes' head coach made his pitch to Atlanta.
