NASHVILLE, Tenn. – So Deion Sanders thinks Tyrann Mathieu is the best safety in the NFL.

That’s a perfectly fine opinion no matter how debatable.

But it would carry more sway if the Hall of Fame cornerback an NFL Network analyst knew the league better.

It’s hard for anyone to have a complete feel for 1,696 players who comprise the 53-man rosters for 32 teams. Even just the starting lineups are 704 players.

I’m not giving Sanders a pass on that. He should be familiar with most of the league. He certainly should be familiar with All-Pro players.

And apparently, he doesn’t even know who Kevin Byard is.

Sanders is so in-tune with players that Micah Hyde, Eric Weddle, Casey Hayward and Jalen Ramsey all chimed in and sided with Byard. And, as many of you have reminded me, Sanders suggested Terry Robiskie should have been in the head coaching pipeline after the 2017 season.
