Photo: Deadspin

Whooooooeeeeee!! Every season without fail, NFL players serve up dozens of acrobatic moves that straight video alone won’t satiate the need to marvel. The cream of this year’s crop incude one handed grabs, fancy footwork, incredible quarterback scrambles (with regrets to statuesque Joe Flacco, Matt Schaub and others), helicopters and hurdles. Props to SB Nation, Deadspin, The Big Lead, Bleacher Report and others who dropped the majority of these GIFs. They appear below in no particular order, although we felt compelled to give cover honors to Vic Ballard and his backwards spinning leap.
