Likely top ten pick Eric Berry is the first defensive back in a long time who doesn’t look up to Deion Sanders. In fact, Berry doesn’t seem to like him at all.
Berry says Sanders declined to give him an autograph when Berry was in high school. That’s changed how the Tennessee safety approaches others.
“I just try to make sure that if someone comes up to me, whether it’s
for an autograph or a handshake — because I’ve been shot down before
like I told you — I don’t want nobody to feel like that,” Berry said, according to NFL.com.
Berry holds a grudge to this day, and wasn’t interested in speaking to Sanders at a NFL “Play 60” event held Wednesday.
