Deion Sanders roasts Tony Romo on NFL network

NFL Hall of Famer Primetime admits he does not know the address to take the high road.

During a live CBS broadcast color commentator and former Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo took a shot at Deion Sanders, Sunday. When criticizing Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters weakness on tackling Romo compared him to Sanders.

“He makes Deion Sanders look good at tackling sometimes,” Romo said of Peters.

When this soundbite was played in front of Sanders on NFL network Sanders went in on Romo.

“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. “Ten years as a starter you went 2-4 in the playoffs, you ain’t won nothing.”

Both working for CBS Sanders shook Romo’s hand and said he was doing good work as a commentator not too long ago. The two-time Super Bowl Champion never thought Romo would try to rip him during a live broadcast.

“Tony what’s going on man. I got a gold jacket that I didn’t buy. Dak [Prescott] says ‘hi’ and ‘bye,'” Sanders said. “Tony leave me alone I have a lot of ammunition.”

One stat he brought up was 19 interceptions Romo had thrown the 2012 season.

“Come on man, you threw to everybody but me,” Sanders said. “You know you never won the big one so stop, leave me alone.

“I tried to take the high road but I don’t know the address.”

Perhaps Romo will think twice before making a negative Sanders reference during an NFL broadcasts.
