Deion Sanders appeared on the Tom Joyner Morning Show yesterday with Roland Martin* and Sybil Wilkes. Sanders was there to talk about the DeSean Jackson situation, but before he hung up, he was asked about Johnny Manziel because everyone needs to know what everyone else thinks about Johnny Manziel. Deion did not disappoint and gave his hottest hot take. Transcript via RolandMartinReports.com:
SYBIL WILKES: So before you go, Deion, what do you think about all of this talk about Roland’s boy, Johnny Football, Johnny Manzel in all of the conversation about him?
DEION SANDERS: Oh, please. I love Johnny Football. See, the reason people won’t accept Johnny Football is because Johnny Football has ghetto tendencies. I love Johnny Football.
TOM JOYNER: He’s got ghetto tendencies?
ROLAND MARTIN: He’s got ghetto tendencies? What are ghetto tendencies, Prime Time?
DEION SANDERS: Because he was successful, he made it, and he let you all know he made it, and he was cocky, he was flamboyant, and he let you know.
After Black Sports Online picked up on the story, Deion went on Twitter and denied that he ever said what he said.
@BlkSportsOnline Stop lying man. Never said that.

Deion most definitely said exactly that. Odd denial. Sanders also added that Manziel should be picked #1 overall by the Houston Texans because he will fill the stadium. He has yet to deny that.
