Best Answer

Illegally grasping or pulling an opponent other than the ball carrier while attempting to ward off a block or cover a receiver. One of the most commonly called penalties. If a penalty for holding that occurred in the offense's endzone is accepted, a safety results.

A holding penalty is called when a player either grabs the jersey or any ither equipement of the adversary and manipulates him by trying to do unwilling movememtns such as bringing the guy down or just pulling him back. It is a medium-caused penalty in football.
