Uhmm . . . Yes you could put it that way. Or you could see it as a TE making a catch with his back to the defender and end zone with the sideline to his right so he could either crash out of bounds or turn left and head upfield.

He chose correctly and snapped his hips, got his feet right and in a couple of steps ran by the safety who tried but failed to horse collar him. That kind of athletic move is rare for a 250 lb guy.

Welker kind of did the same thing on his first (?) touchdown when he used the defender as a shield and then spun around him by changing his direction and momentum as he turned very quickly.
