Atlanta Falcons all-time starting defense, special teams
- CB1: Deion Sanders
- CB2: Brent Grimes
Want two of the best playmaking corners ever? Here they are and they both played for the Atlanta Falcons.
Deion Sanders is the greatest corner to play football, not many fans will debate that. He is one of the only true shutdown corners to ever exist, as whoever the Falcons put him likely would not make any impact on the game.
He was one of the fastest and most confident players to ever play in the NFL. Not much else you can say other than he was special and we will probably never see a player like him again.
The second corner spot was difficult to choose but it goes to Brent Grimes for his ability to find the football.
Grimes was another shutdown corner in his prime. He was also one of the best ballhawks in the league during his time. No quarterback ever felt comfortable throwing it his way as he was always getting his hands on passes.
These two guys would shut down any receivers who line up against them.
