Deion Sanders

One of the rarest of athletes to play the game, Deion Sanders dabbled in professional baseball at the same time that he was building a Hall of Fame career as a NFL cornerback. "Prime Time" was known for his speed, hands and return abilities. In his 13-year career, he picked off 53 passes, nine of which were returned for touchdowns, and also scored nine times as a kickoff and punt return specialist. The two-time Super Bowl champion and 1994 Defensive Player of the Year played for five teams, most prominently the Atlanta Falcons and the Dallas Cowboys.
