Deion Sanders was a generational NFL player entering the league with the confidence and bravado of a 10-year veteran Pro Bowler. He was arrogant, talked a lot and generally drew attention to himself.
But if he didn't back up every last bit of his talking.
Sure, a large portion of Primetime's legacy will be his personality but you have to understand just how good he was in his day. We talk about shutdown corners all the time in today's NFL and you can thank Primetime for the resurgence of that type of cornerback.
