Quarterbacks are specialists in throwing the ball, but very few are blessed with quick legs to work as running backs when necessary, also known as dual-threat quarterbacks.
One of the most notable dual-threat quarterbacks of the last four to six years is Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes. During his first seasons with the Chiefs, he proved to be fast and reckless, although today he no longer runs as much as before.
Injuries are a major concern for quarterbacks who run the ball a lot. If they don’t slide, they could be brutally tackled by a big defensive player.

Who was the quarterback with the most rushing yards in a season?
Lamar Jackson has the most rushing yards by a quarterback in a season, with 1,206 yards in 2019.

Jackson is a dual-threat quarterback, meaning that he is a threat to both pass and run the ball.
