NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders is selling his home in Canton, Mississippi, for $1.5 million. Sanders relocated to Mississippi three years ago to serve as the head football coach at Jackson State University. Now, he is headed West to lead the University of Colorado Buffaloes.
Sanders, known throughout his career as “Prime Time” and “Neon Deion,” is a professional athlete who played for the National Football League and Major League Baseball. He was the only professional athlete to appear in both a Super Bowl and a World Series. Sanders played for NFL teams such as the Atlanta Falcons, the San Francisco 49ers, the Dallas Cowboys, the Washington Redskins and the Baltimore Ravens. In a career that spanned 14 seasons, Sanders won two Super Bowl titles and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011. As a baseball player, Sanders played for the New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants. After playing for two professional leagues and following various endorsements with companies such as Nike, Sega, Burger King, American Express, Pizza Hut and Pepsi, Sanders has a net worth of $60 million.
The University of Colorado was able to lure Sanders to the institution with a five-year contract valued at $29.5 million.

Large and Small Properties In Texas
In 1999, Sanders built a 10-bedroom, 10-bathroom home in Prosper, Texas. Located 45 minutes north of Dallas, the 29,000-square-foot mansion included many luxe features such as an entertainment wing, which included a bowling alley, basketball court, billiard room, barbershop and movie theater. Sanders sold the property in 2014, for $15 million.
For several years, Sanders rented a ‘tiny house” in a neighboring community before purchasing 7000 acres of land in Cedar Hill, Texas. In love with the concept of efficiency, Sanders built a 600-square-foot home on the land, which included a yoga studio and movie theater.
