VIDEO: Get Out Of Your Break Just Like Eric Berry

New, comments

Now for our second Eric Berry video of the day...

So you're looking to play safety just like Kansas City Chiefs S Eric Berry

He's got a few tips for you on things he's learned in the NFL, mainly how to get out of your break. The video after the jump demonstrates Berry's "tap, tap" two-step to get out of his break rather than a couple other techniques coaches have taught him over the years.

Here's what Berry said about his two-step break (via Arrowheadlines and STACK):
Me and my roommate, Art Evans, came up with it. "Tap-Tap," as we would call it. We had a lot of different coaches coming through Tennessee. Some coaches were telling us to T-Plant, some were telling us to bicycle. We were like, "forget it," we're going to make our own, and we came up with the Tap-Tap. It's basically just two steps and when you come out of your break, you don't plant off one foot, you plant off two. I found that helped coming out of your break faster than the T-Plant or bicycle.

Check out the video demonstration after the jump. [Warning: Video plays automatically when you make the jump so turn the sound down if your boss can hear you.]
