David D. "Deacon" Jones

David D. "Deacon" Jones (born December 9, 1938) nicknamed "Secretary of Defense" is a former professional football player and actor. Born in Eatonville, Florida, Jones is considered to be one of the greatest defensive ends of all time. Jones specialized in quarterback sacks, a term attributed to him. An extremely durable player, Jones missed only six games of a possible 196 regular-season encounters in his 14 NFL seasons. He is also noted for perfecting the notorious "head slap" in defensive line play, a tactic that was shortly made illegal in pro football.

He claims that he accumulated 173.5 sacks over his career, which, if true, would be third on the all-time sack list.
