Barry Sanders shook hands with fans Cheap Sean Lee Jersey , posed for pictures and engaged in small talk outside a suite at Ford Field before the Detroit Lions opened the season against the New York Jets.At halftime, the Hall of Fame running back was on the field to turn a huge key, and the stadium's speakers blared with the sounds of an engine revving.Sanders is in his second season as an ambassador for the team, a paid role that is sending him on the road for Detroit's game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday."It's definitely nice to be back after the first few years of being retired and there not being much communication," Sanders said in an interview with The Associated Press. "So, certainly just being able to be involved with certain things that the team is doing from a community outreach standpoint and that sort of thing, for me, it's great."And, just being able to be around the game a little more and certainly around the Lions family a little more for me is meaningful so I do appreciate that."The Lions like the arrangement, too.Sanders visits suite holders during games and attends meet-and-greet sessions along with going to other team functions such as its draft party."It's great having him around and back in the fold, interacting with fans and corporate sponsors," Lions president Rod Wood told The AP. "He's probably if not the best player in Lions history, he's in the handful of the best."And Youth Joe Looney Jersey , he's definitely the most remembered by our fans."While it may seem like a logical connection between the former star player and the only NFL team he played for, their relationship was not smooth in the years following his sudden and surprising retirement just before training camp began 1999.Sanders is always showered with cheers in the Motor City these days. But he was booed in public at times back in the day by fans who were still unhappy he walked away from the game after 10 spectacular seasons when he was on the verge of becoming the NFL's all-time leading rusher."I hated that it came to the point where he was getting booed," said Lomas Brown, one of Sanders' former teammates. "He's one of the greatest ever and he did it all here in Detroit. There are still some people holding a grudge today, but that's been gone for a while."Brown hopes the Lions take another step in their relationship with Sanders by honoring him with a statue at Ford Field."It's hard to believe there's not one," Brown said.Wood declined to say if there are plans to erect a Sanders statue."We've talked about things we haven't announced," Wood said.When Calvin Johnson announced his retirement two years ago, it reminded people of Sanders' decision to walk away from the game.Like Sanders, the former star receiver chose to leave the Lions and the league with years left on his contract and seemingly some solid seasons left in his career.Johnson retired two years ago and the team has tried and failed, so far, to rekindle its relationship with him.As Sanders was the honored guest in Wood's suite for a game earlier this month, Johnson was in a nearby luxury box on the same floor."I know Lions fans appreciate Barry's role with the team because he's the greatest Lion and one of the greatest running backs 鈥?if not the greatest 鈥?to play the game," said Johnson , who declined to talk about his relationship with the team.Brown believes time will take care of whatever issues are keeping Johnson from being a part of the organization in some way."If the Lions continue to reaching out to him and being warm to him, I think it'll happen," Brown said.Wood is working on it."It's still goal of the organization, and me in particular, to get Calvin back in the fold," Wood said. "It was good to see him at the (Jets) game." Dak Prescott wasn't much into Cam Newton comparisons when the subject came up before his Dallas Cowboys faced the star quarterback of the Carolina Panthers in the opener.And that was before Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones dropped Newton's name while suggesting the Cowboys needed to use their QB as a runner more after Dallas lost to the Panthers.And then Prescott had a career high in yards rushing while matching the second-most attempts in his two-plus NFL seasons as the Cowboys took a quick lead and beat the New York Giants.So what do those seven carries for 45 yards mean going forward with one of the league's best running backs lining up behind him? Depends on the game plan."Running is something that kind of comes natural," Prescott said after the 20-13 win that helped Dallas avoid the first 0-2 start in seven seasons under coach Jason Garrett with a trip to Seattle on Sunday. "We knew this defense was going to give us that. I'm a bigger guy. I was going to challenge some of those DBs to make tackles."Prescott will be the first to tell you he's not as big as Newton (6-foot-5 vs. 6-2) or as fast (4.59 vs. 4.8 on 40-yard dash times at the NFL combine). But the Cowboys need as many ways as possible to take the focus off Ezekiel Elliott.While Elliott still struggled somewhat to find room to run against the Giants after an early 19-yard carry, Prescott's rushing day pushed the team rushing total to 138 yards 鈥?a range that would easily be among the top 10 in the NFL over a full season."I do think the quarterback runs are a byproduct of maybe how they're focusing and trying to take Zeke Elliott out of it," coach Jason Garrett said Monday. "So the complement of Dak being able to run the ball on some of those runs certainly helps us. Obviously Zeke is a big part of what we're doing."Prescott was a little flummoxed two weeks ago when asked how he compared himself to Newton, shrugging it off by saying the 2015 NFL MVP is "not somebody you can necessarily emulate when you have the physical traits that he does."But the 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year has as many as rushing touchdowns as Newton since entering the league. They're tied for the lead among quarterbacks with 12 apiece in that 34-game span.The Cowboys' reaction was easy to predict on questions about Prescott running more so soon after the owner chimed in. They've done this plenty before, they said. They'll do it again, they said."And if you do it like we did it in the last game, then I can assure you when the next team Cheap Tyron Smith Jersey , in this case Seattle, is game planning you they have to be aware for it and adjust for it," executive vice president of personnel Stephen Jones said on his radio show Monday. "And I think that opens up even more for Zeke."With the Cowboys, it will most certainly come back to Elliott, the NFL rushing leader as Prescott's fellow rookie sensation two years ago when Dallas had an NFC-best 13 wins.Whether running or throwing deep as he did to Tavon Austin for a 64-yard score on the third play of the game against the Giants, Prescott never has his thoughts far from feeding his backfield mate."You have to put it in somebody's hands," Prescott said. "When you have a great run game like we do, and a great running back, as you saw what they did tonight and what we've done the past two years running the ball, to me it is kind of obvious."And if the opposition turns the focus to Prescott, there's a good chance plenty of those fake handoffs will become real ones.
