Madden 22 Top 10 Safeties
Safeties are such an important part of any defence as they set the tone on the back-end for a secondary. Capable of playing down in the box to help stop the run as well as deep centre-field ball-hawking skills in the passing game, Safties put their fingerprints all over the gridiron.
With so many big names playing Saftey in today's NFL, the position should be full of different X-Factors in Madden 22. Here are the top 10 Safeties in Madden 22.
