So the Daft is done & dusted and it’s about four months before the NFL kicks off and I for one cannot get anymore excited. Well, I thought I couldn’t then the Madden 2016 game gets a cover star and a little preview video and now I’ve got even more pumped.
As mentioned; the cover star has been voted in, as it is every year with the NFL games, this year sees non-other than NY Giants 22-year-old Wide Receiver and NFL’s Rookie of the year (and Offensive Rookie of the Year), Odell Beckham Jr take the cover spot – and after THAT catch against the Cowboys, he deserves it.
Beckham Jnr fought off the likes of Steelers Receiver Antonio Brown, Cardials Cornerback Patrick Peterson, and Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski to become the youngest ever player to be put on the cover of a Madden game.
With that EA Sports have also released a small preview video for the game titled ‘be the playmaker’ which is a fitting title with the chosen cover star who made A LOT of big plays for the Giants last season.
Madden 16 will be available from 25 August, 2015.
