If you know anything about Deion “Prime Time” Sanders, you knew that newly-inducted Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders was going to go about his speech a little differently. The man who may have been the greatest cover cornerback ever in his prime talked with great emotion about his mother, thanked just about everybody he’s ever met (as Andrew Siciliano of the Red Zone Channel and NEL Network said via Twitter, “This is the first, and last, time [rapper] Ice Cube and [longtime Cowboys coach] Dave Campo get thanked in the same speech.”
Prime also got in the line of the evening when he bought up his reputation for being unable/unwilling to tackle: “Since 1989, I’ve tackled every bill my momma has ever given me.”
