The three-man defensive line is used against a four-man offensive formation. • ALL three defensive linemen must be in a low position – 3-point posture.

• A fourth defensive lineman can be used against a five-point player in the box formation. This formation now consists of two (2) D tackles and two (2) D ends, of which both (2) D ends can now be in the 2-point position. • In the four-man defense, both (2) inside linemen must be in a low position. • In all defensive formations, the extremities must be within one meter of the offensive personnel. • All non-defensive linemen (i.e. linebackers, safeties and corners) must be at least four (4) yards from the line of scrimmage and cannot advance until the ball is slammed.

Non-defensive linemen can have either pass coverage or a spying responsibility on the QB in case the QB crosses the line of scrimmage and runs the ball. 8-person arena football limits the protection of a QB, so the “no blitzing” rule is necessary for safety and to promote the passing game. • Exceptions: (1) A non-defensive lineman may flash when an offensive player other than QB attempts a pass.
