Deion Sanders admittedly doesn’t know the address for the high road. Following the Cowboys’ 28-17 victory over the Chiefs on Sunday afternoon in Jerry World, the Hall of Fame cornerback went after CBS’ breakout commentator and fellow Cowboys alum, Tony Romo, after the newly retired quarterback unfavorably compared Kansas City cornerback Marcus Peters’ tackling abilities to Primetime’s. “Tony, I tried my best to take the high road … but I don’t know the address to the high road, so I got to come at you, man,” Sanders said on NFL Network, via 247 Sports. “Ten years as a starter you were 2-4 in the playoffs. [You] ain’t won nothing. I tried to bury the hatchet.” Sanders was known for his blanket coverage on the league’s top receivers, but was frequently mocked for his aversion to open-field tackling. “He makes Deion Sanders look good at tackling sometimes,” Romo joked to Jim Nantz.
