Antonio Brown has been Named the Madden 19 Cover Athlete. Madden 19 will be available on August 10th, 2018.

Highlights of the press release below:

“I am beyond honored to be on the cover of both Madden games,” said Brown. “There’s a lot of milestones athletes dream of, and after being inducted into the Madden 99 Club earlier this year, and now appearing on the cover of this year’s games, it’s clear that business is not just booming, but I’m also among the all-time greatest with these honors.”

Fans eager to control AB and other NFL stars will see the immediate benefits of Real Player Motion in Madden NFL 19. RPM technology will give fans even more control of in-game moves and immersive animations, making AB and other players move and act like their real-life counterparts as they charge through the game, showcasing their unique personalities, mannerisms, and of course, celebrations.

“AB has taken the league by storm the past few years and is arguably one of the best wide receivers to ever play in the NFL,” said Joshua Rabenovets, Sr. Brand Director at EA SPORTS. “His game is hot, he’s got a ton of personality on and off the field – he was an easy choice for the Madden NFL 19 cover.”

NFL rookies pick their Madden19 Ratings

This is a fun promo video. If I was a rookie, I’ll like to think my rating would be good, heck 85 ovr and above.

Saquon Barkley, New York Giants, 82 OVR: Ranking behind only offensive lineman Quenton Nelson among all rookies, Barkley has the intangibles to quickly become a hot commodity for the G-Men and for Madden.

An effective balance of Speed (92) and moves (91 Juke) make Barkley the player of choice for the Giants’ ground attack. He may be beneath veteran Jonathan Stewart on the depth chart, but his intangibles give him elite-level potential.

Baker Mayfield, Quarterback, Cleveland Browns 81 OVR: Well, the Browns drafted a QB. Again. While that might be a bit of a broken record for the Dawg Pound, this roster is showing tremendous promise. Coach Hue Jackson might want to ease him into a starting role, but the team clearly believes in Mayfield as their future investment.

An 81 Speed doesn’t make Mayfield the fastest QB we’ve seen, but pair that with a 95 Throw Power, 88 Throw on the Run, and accuracy scores in the 80s at Short, Medium and Deep ranges means he’s not completely reliant on pocket protection to be a playmaker.
