....... hmmmm, on a pass play letting Wand step back could be interesting if we were playing against 3-4 defense.
Teams must have at least
7 have to be on the line of scrimmage. You can
have more than 7 but all players who are eligible to catch a pass cannot have another player on the LOS outside of them for that is an illegal formation. In Clandestine's formation the TE would be eligible once he is put into motion. If AJ steps back and goes into motion then the TE is eligible also since he is the end player on the LOS. These rules are where the terms "tight end" and "split end" come from. The player caping the Tackle is an end. Either "tight" or "split" (out).
