EXCERPT: Deacon Jones, one of the most talented defensive ends in pro football, wanted to be even more menacing. Watching a tape of a Muhammad Ali-Sonny Liston title fight, Jones saw how Ali used jabs, quick combinations and excellent footwork to defeat Liston by technical knockout in six rounds.  Jones thought that incorporating similar moves into his game would provide an edge when he squared off against offensive linemen.  Entering his fifth season, he possessed the speed and power to outmaneuver opponents but needed another weapon to make it even harder for them to stop him.  He thus refined his use of the head slap, a move the National Football League has since outlawed.
