I haven't been doing [this trick] for that long. It's something I started doing just a couple of years ago when I was with the Colts.

Basically, you spin a football the same way you would spin a top. If you can get it spinning for five seconds, you've done it well. I put the nose of the ball in the center of my right hand. And then I'm using my whole arm to drop it and spin it: shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist, fingers. It's not easy at first. You have to do it for a while to get used to it.

The most important thing is that you have to get the ball to land on the nose. You may not spin it fast or long, but if it's not on the nose, it isn't going to spin at all.
