Default Deacon Jones dead at 74

Man, I have to say this is one of the first times in a long time I've been sad to hear about an athlete passing. This guy was almost larger than life to me because he was so great, but he reminded me so much of my grandfather who passed away when I was young with his story telling and how real he was. Give a few head slaps up in heaven Deacon!

“Deacon Jones was one of the greatest players in NFL history. Off the field, he was a true giant. His passion and spirit will continue to inspire those who knew him” said Allen. “He was cherished member of the Allen family and I will always consider him my big brother.”
