Which NFL Quarterback Has the Biggest Hands?

Quarterbacks like Brett Favre and Drew Brees have shown that hand size might be more important than height for a quarterback in the NFL. Brett Favre was able to play well even in unfavourable weather conditions and his enormous hands contributed to this. Bigger hands mean you can have a better grip on the ball and have more control when throwing it. Passers need to be able to control the football at all times. They need to hold onto it in a crowded pocket, pump fake, control it on play-action and direct it with ease as they throw, and big hands allow for all of those things.

Most NFL teams today prefer their quarterbacks to have a handspan of at least 9.5 inches and are very hesitant to pick a quarterback with a handspan that measures less than that. Browns coach Hue Jackson is especially particular about the hand size of his quarterbacks and has said he prefers those with handspans of 10 inches or wider. Former Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly even proposed that quarterbacks didn’t thrive because they were tall, but rather because they had big hands. There might be an element of truth to Kelly's reasoning as quarterbacks typically throw through passing lanes, not over the top of their linemen, regardless of their height. This article takes a look at some NFL quarterbacks with the most impressive hand sizes.

Hand size measurement at the NFL Combine is done by measuring the tip of the thumb to the tip of the pinky finger with the hand outstretched.

How Is Hand Size Measured in the NFL?

Hand size measurement at the NFL Combine is done by measuring the tip of the thumb to the tip of the pinky finger with the hand outstretched. The number obtained is the player’s handspan, or spread. It’s extremely rare for even an NFL player to have a handspan of 11 inches or wider. The largest hand measurement in Combine history is 11.75 inches, and the record is shared by DeForest Buckner, Gosder Cherilus, and Mo Alie-Cox. The average male’s handspan is around 8.5 inches.

Unfortunately, the NFL doesn’t measure hand length, which is another way to measure hand size. It is measured from the base of the palm to the tip of the middle finger. The NBA measures both the hand length and span of players at the Combine. For instance, LeBron James had his hands measured at 9 inches in length. The average hand length for a male is around 7.4 inches. It’s very common for people to confuse handspan with hand length and vice versa. An individual’s span is almost always greater than his length.

Oronde Gadsden

No one can dispute the fact that Oronde Gadsden had huge hands. It was said that he had hands the size of a baseball glove, and it was one of the reasons he could pull out those incredible catches. Unfortunately, there is no reliable data on his hand size, but it was believed to be the largest of any WR in the NFL. It is safe to say Gadsden's handspan should be in the range of 10.50 to 10.80 inches.

Julian Edelman

Unfortunately, there is no reliable data on the hand measurements of Julian Edelman. However, anyone who has watched him play can easily tell his hand size isn't all that impressive. He seems to have pretty average hands for a 5'10" guy, which means his handspan should be around 8.50 inches.

Keeping Height in Mind

Brock Osweiler is one of the two tallest players in NFL history. The other is Daniel McGwire, and they both stand at 6'8". The handspan of Osweiler is 9.88 inches. Being tall usually comes with huge hands, so Osweiler's handspan, though significantly wider than the average male's span of 8.5 inches, is pretty average for his height.

Being tall does not always come with big hands. At 6’3", former quarterback Kliff Kingsbury has a handspan of 8.50 inches. The average handspan of someone of that height is around 9.20 inches, and hence Kingsbury’s hands are quite small for his height.

Players like Chad Pennington also beat the norm by having huge hands for their height. Pennington has a handspan of 10.25 inches. He has the same handspan as Daniel McGwire. Pennington’s hand size is pretty impressive if you consider the fact that he stands at the same height as Kliff Kingsbury.

Michael Vick did well in the NFL despite his small hands which measures only 8.50 inches.
