A WR is a abbreviation for Wide Receiver. The WR's job is to exucute the route the play has defined for the WR. The WR then runs the route trying to elude the DB(Defensive Back) that is assigned to stop the WR. But the main duty of the WR is to catch the ball and try to get into the endzone for a touchdown
