When To Use A Slide Release

The slide release is heavily glorified on social media and by a lot of coaches but do players really know when to use it and how to use it? That’s the main question. A lot of guys don’t know when to use it. They will use a slide on a dig or a post route and that is completely wrong because it takes too much time. When you use a legitimate slide release where you slide maybe twice and give a move, that should only be used on a fade or a slant. Now a hesitation wide step, Davante Adams style, is something you can use on all routes but guys don’t know what to build off that with. If you give that hesitation wide step and the DB jumps outside don’t just keep running and try to force the outside, use an inside release. Don’t be so committed on that single move, take what they give you. That’s where a lot of guys mess up, they don’t know that releases are all about reacting.
