Deon Juniel Figures (born January 10, 1970 in Bellflower, California) is a former professional American football cornerback in the NFL. He played four years for the Pittsburgh Steelers 1993 to 1996 and two for the Jacksonville Jaguars 1997 to 1998. While with Pittsburgh in 1994, he helped the Steelers reach the AFC Championship Game against the San Diego Chargers. But an interference penalty that he committed put San Diego deep in Pittsburgh territory for a score. Figures and fellow cornerback Tim McKyer shoulder much blame for that loss. He attended the University of Colorado where he won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's top defensive back in 1992. He intercepted Notre Dame's Rick Mirer in the 1991 Orange Bowl on the final play of the game to preserve a 10-9 Colorado victory and capture the 1990 national championship.
