With the 2019 edition of the super popular Madden NFL video game getting ready to hit shelves in August, EA Sports revealed superstar Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown will grace the cover.
For this year Madden will host a crop of wide receivers on its covers with Hall of Fame wideout Terrell Owens appearing in the legendary colors of America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys, for the Hall-of-Fame edition.
This year’s Madden brings seven elite rankings of 99 to the league’s stars. The best players in the game will be Brown, St. Louis Ram Aaron Donald, Von Miller of the Denver Broncos, Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, Aaron Rogers of the Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers defensive anchor Luke Kuechly.
Fans of the Steelers may be wary of AB taking over the cover due to the dreaded Madden curse, especially with drama brewing between the team and star halfback Le’Veon Bell. Last year Tom Brady was the cover star and made it to the Super Bowl so there may not be much to worry about.
Check out the cover reveal below.
