One former Dallas Cowboys cornerback is loving what he is seeing from the current one.

Retired NFL legend and Jackson State coach Deion Sanders tweeted a bold statement this weekend about Cowboys star Trevon Diggs. Sanders said that Diggs should be NFL MVP or should at least be in the conversation.

Diggs is highly unlikely to receive MVP consideration. Adrian Peterson in 2012 was the last non-quarterback to win the award. Meanwhile, only two defensive players have ever won MVP — Alan Page in 1971 and Lawrence Taylor in 1986.
