EA Sports has now announced the cover athlete for the standard version of Madden 19 coming out later this year. Pittsburgh Steelers fans will be happy to know that Antonio Brown has been selected for the cover.
Bear in mind, Antonio Brown is only on the cover of Madden 19 if you buy the cheaper Standard Edition. The Hall of Fame edition of the game will see Terrell Owens on the cover.
Antonio Brown is not scared of the Madden “cover curse” that plagues many other players. He said: “You gotta stay focused. Obviously this is a tremendous honor, you can’t get caught up in worrying about what others believe,” the six-time Pro Bowler told SI. “I’m extremely focused and excited to be in everyone’s household, to let them see me in my Steelers uniform representing my club“.
Madden 19 releases on August 10th, 2018 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms. Check out the video posted below for more about Antonio Brown.
