WAGGLE

What is WAGGLE?

WAGGLE meaning play-action pass in which the quarterback fakes a handoff to one side then rolls out deep to the other side and throws to one of two or more receivers who are running toward the same side; typically, the shallow receiver does a delayed release after blocking for a one- or two-count; some coaches use the term “waggle” when the quarterback fakes a handoff then rolls out to the same side as the handoff fake; very effective at all levels of football
