Top Ten Best NFL Safeties


The Top TenXW

1Troy PolamaluTroy Aumua Polamalu is a former American football strong safety who played his entire twelve-year career for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

Hey! Whoa there! Polamalu may have worse records than Ed Reed but has anyone seen the interception he did against the Chargers?! Ed Reed got traded to the Texans in 2013 and then got traded again to the Jets. Troy Polamalu is obviously the better of the two.

# 1. He can catch anything and he is a better playmaker than anyone in the NFL or DA Bomb!

The Steelers have a top 3 defense with him, but it's below average without him, proven by the 2009 season.

2Ed Reed

The best ever, even though injuries have slowed his career and physicality in the game. Ed reed changed the game, and made the defense into an offensive assault.

Polamalu is amazing but Reed is obviously the better out of the two. - schaf1492

I love this guy. Bears fans all wish they could say Mike Brown, but he's hurt, again! I hate that guy. GET RID OF HIM JERRY ANGELO!!!! - crazyeyes56

4Ronnie Lott

How isn't he on this list. He is the definition of a hard hitting safety

How is he not number 1 what even is this?

He has tons of interceptions is the defenition of hard hitting and he also aputated his finger to play in a game. He should be number one

5Sean Taylor

He was on the right path to become a superstar, but then he was murdered.

His death still haunts me to this day.

His hits were out of this world it's sent players across the field

He would punish you when you ran the ball.

Such a hard hitting safety he once knocked himself out because he hit an opponent so hard. The guy is so tough.

7Bob Sanders

Bob Sanders is a beast

He should be #3

Small but mighty

Running backs watch out for Sanders
