Not to be picky but he never played with Deion until after he tried to comeback and was never the same. Deion was signed after he was injured.
I remember Pup as a tough hard nosed cb that was always up to the challenge of covering a teams best wr pre injury. After the injury he was a PI machine. Some he deserved most of the he didn't. The wr knew all he had to do was get bumped a little and the flag was coming.
It would have been something to see him play with Deion before he got hurt. The qb would have been a sitting duck because he wouldn't have had anywhere to throw the ball.
