Deion ‘Prime Time’ Sanders was one of my favorite athletes to watch, he just had something about him that made you a fan. He was extremely confident, had a unique style and always walked the walk on the field. Deion is viewed by many as the best cornerback the NFL has ever seen. He had the ability to completely lock down one half of the field daring quarterbacks to throw his way.
In addition to being the best cornerback of all time, Deion is in a two-man discussion for greatest two sport athlete with Bo Jackson. Bo and Deion were both amazing on the football field. They were stars in baseball as well but with two completely different skill sets. I’ll give Bo the nod in baseball for better player but overall I favor Deion because of his longevity in both sports. But two sports wasn’t enough, according to BleacherReport.com, Deion was really close to playing a professional game for the Atlanta Hawks.
