Wide Receiver
A WIDE RECEIVER (also referred to as WIDEOUTS or simply RECEIVERS) is an offensive position in American and Canadian football , and is the key player in most of the passing plays. They get their name because they are split out "wide" (near the sidelines), farthest away from the rest of the team. Wide receivers are among the fastest players on the field . The wide receiver functions as the pass-catching specialist. CONTENTS * 1 Role * 2 History of the position * 3 Types * 4 Notes ROLE Calvin Johnson The wide receiver's principal role is to catch passes from the quarterback . On passing plays, the receiver attempts to avoid, outmaneuver, or simply outrun defenders (typically cornerbacks and/or safeties ) in the area of his pass route . If the receiver becomes open, or has an unobstructed path to the destination of a catch, he may then become the quarterback's target. Once a pass is thrown in his direction, the receiver's goal is to first catch the ball and then attempt to run downfield. Some receivers are perceived as a deep threat because of their flat-out speed, while others may be possession receivers known for not dropping passes, running crossing routes across the middle of the field, and generally, converting third down situations
