Defensive backs face wide receivers in an athletic and dynamic battle on every snap.

These players defend the backline of the team. When deep balls are thrown or a player gets through linebackers, the defensive backs that are the last line of defense.

Legendary units like the Legion of Boom in Seattle could shut down a team’s passing attack with hard-hitting ball hawks.

A great secondary will slow down receivers and keep your opponent from throwing the deep ball on every snap.
