Gain the Edge: Receiver Gloves & Linemen Gloves
When you’re ready to improve your on-field performance, get a pair of football gloves from DICK’S Sporting Goods.
No matter if you’re a skill player or a lineman in the trenches, football gloves help players gain an edge on the field. Receivers, running backs and defensive backs depend on football gloves to grip the ball. And linemen benefit from the added warmth and protection gloves provide.
No matter you position, go for football gloves from the brands you trust, like Nike®, Under Armour®, adidas® and more.
If you play a skill position—wide receivers, tight ends or running backs—receiver gloves can dramatically elevate your performance. These gloves are constructed from innovative technical fabrics that maintain a tacky texture—so you can grip the ball in any weather condition. Lightweight padding on the back of the hand provides added protection and shock absorption.
Playing on the line can be bruising, which is why a pair of linemen gloves are a must-have. Offering protection for your hands and support for your wrists, these gloves accept abuse, instead of your fingers and hands.
Look for details like a snug-fitting Velcro® wrist closure, which ensures a secure fit on the field. Gloves designed with moisture-wicking technology work to keep your hands dry and comfortable during the game.
Linemen need protection and comfort on the field. A good lineman glove protects knuckles and the back of the hand, while also supporting wrists. Half-finger linemen gloves are a great option for centers who want better feel of the ball. Linemen gloves typically have more padding than receiver gloves.
Receiver gloves are available in a variety of styles and colors—so players can find the right fit for their game.
Durability, longevity and that perfectly sticky surface are among the most important qualities receivers need in their gloves. Also, consider the level of padding you want in your gloves. Receiver gloves with extra padding can sometimes impede ball handling.
