Sportsnaut Logo Sportsnaut | Slide 1 of 11: The read option has come and gone as a staple of NFL offenses, but it’s also left a mark. Now, more than ever, coaches allow their quarterbacks to run. In some offenses, that means the zone read is still called with regularity. In others, that means the quarterback will break the pocket and go as he pleases. In others still, it means the zone read could be mixed in every other game as to retain the element of surprise.
