What Is The Definition Of Man In Motion In Football?
1. This term is used to described an offensive player that moves along the line of scrimmage just before the snap. By the time the snap is made, any man in motion must come to a stop and face the defense in order to avoid a penalty for illegal motion. Moving before the snap can help to evade or confuse the defense right before the play begins. Also, by putting a man in motion, the offense is able to evaluate if the defense is in man coverage or zone coverage.
