Electronic Arts wants to know your favorite football player

, | Games

…football fans across the country will have the opportunity to select the next cover athlete for the award-winning Madden NFL franchise. Beginning today and continuing through April 27, fans can participate in a bracket-style voting campaign and choose among 32 candidates (one representative from every NFL team) to appear on the cover of Madden NFL 12. Fans’ votes will determine which NFL players advance through the seeded bracket, culminating in the reveal of the Madden NFL 12 cover athlete on ESPN’s “SportsNation” on April 27.

It seems to me that you’d put Jean Madden on the cover of the game named after him, but I guess Electronic Arts figured it was someone else’s turn for a change. So they’re going to have a vote so you can pick which football player (pictured) will be featured on the cover of the next Madden. I’m going to vote for Pele.
