And before you say anything about intuitives in sports, there are a lot of NFs in pro sports. Anyone can be athletically gifted. Ricky Williams is a blatant INFP running back, so lets not get into it about questioning whether NF's play a sport like football because it's obvious they can.
E - He's definitely Extroverted. A show off, big talker. Smooth conversationalist but not in the diplomatic Fe way.
F - Seems obvious despite his cockiness. Comes across as a really nice peaceful type person.
P - Deion's desire to play both Football and baseball, and his reluctancy to stay in one spot (switched teams a few times) strongly suggests P over J.
Now Why N? He's different. Very unconventional. He was the first athlete to play two pro sports at the same time. And if you ever watch him as an analyst on NFL Network, he's the one guy who usually has something different to offer the conversation. To challenge what is already accepted. Sees the potential in players that the other analysts think won't make it in the league. You just get that N feel.
