Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says Hall-of-Fame cornerback Deion "Prime Time" Sanders could have shut down Calvin "Megatron" Johnson had they played in the same era.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has a formula to stop Detroit Lions superstar wide receiver Calvin "Megatron" Johnson: Deion Sanders

Jones' proclamation on his radio show on KRLD-FM was made in the light of Johnson's 329-yard performance in a game against the Cowboys on Oct. 27, which the Lions won, 31-30. 

He was asked if Sanders, a former Cowboy and Hall of Famer, could put the clamps on Megatron.

"Yes, I do. That's just it. Deion has such catch-up speed and he had real good center-field ability, and I mean that...in (a) football sense. He could really play the ball, and he had such ability to get into position to play the ball. 

"Now, you're talking about the greatest cover guy maybe that's played this game. I've seen where he's been declared the greatest cover guy. Hall of Famer. But I do think he could do a real good job on Johnson. 

"Johnson's going to get some probably, but I think he could do a great job. Deion's a great player." 

Sanders took to Twitter to express his own thoughts about the matter. 

"Fans it's not fair to compare Then to Now! I realize it's fun and these kids can play but This Ain't THAT. Truth

"So please stop asking me can I cover these kids 2day. They are GREAT. But I played against Receivers and Quarterbacks whom shaped this game!"

Sanders, who is now an NFL analyst, played for Dallas from 1995-1999. His stint with the Cowboys is part of an illustrious 14-year career which saw him registering 53 interceptions for nine touchdowns. 

He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011.

High School Star Emmanuel Mudiay Shows Why College Basketball Is A Joke With $1.2 Million Deal In China

Jul 22 2014 12:48pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

How much is one year of college education worth? Divide that number (whatever it may be) by the fact that college athletes don’t get nearly as much value from their degrees as regular students (you saw that UNC “paper” on Rosa Parks, right?) and you’ll get just a fraction of what Emmanuel Mudiay is going to make by playing in China next year rather than attending college. Mudiay, a 19-year-old high school star who had eligibility issues at SMU and may have had to sit out a ye ...
