That is where speed comes into play. The gridiron title has several speedy safeties that are able to traverse from one sideline to the other in just a few seconds. Better yet, if these fast defenders happen to intercept the ball, they should be able to blaze their way to the end zone. Here are the fastest safeties you can find in Madden 23.

No matter if you’re playing Franchise or Ultimate Team, the two best defenders you should be acquiring here is Jeremy Chinn and Justin Reid. Both stars are only 25 years of age, making them relatively cheap to buy in MUT, and they are the most likely to develop X-Factors over time in Franchise. You may also want to look into the fastest wide receivers, as you can compare and see which wideouts these defenders are able to keep up with.
