David D. "Deacon" Jones (born December 9, 1938) nicknamed "Secretary of Defense" is an American athlete and actor. Born in Eatonville, Florida, Jones played professional football and 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.

Football career

Jones had an obscure college career consisting of a year at South Carolina State University in 1958, followed by a year of inactivity and a final season at Mississippi Vocational College (since renamed Mississippi Valley State University) in 1960. He was drafted in the 14th round of the 1961 draft by the Los Angeles Rams, and quickly blossomed into a top defensive end and, for most of a decade, he teamed with tackle Merlin Olsen to give Los Angeles a perennial All-Pro left side of the defensive line. The so-called Fearsome Foursome defensive line of the Rams (Lamar Lundy, Rosey Grier, Olsen, and Jones) is considered one of the best lines of all time, along with the Steel Curtain of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Purple People Eaters of the Minnesota Vikings.

Jones was considered by many to revolutionize the position of defensive end. Jones was noted for coining the "sack". What separated Jones from every other defensive end was his blinding speed and his ability to make tackles from sideline to sideline, which was unheard of in his time.
