“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.”

I got to have the worst luck with Madden packs in the whole world. I just dont get good cards when I open packs. Madden 18, is currently having a Fan Appreciation event. So, I decided to open 2 packs and hopefully get some great cards. I did not get any great cards, even got a duplicate.

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.
EA has announced the Madden 99 club. On 6/27 EA will reveal 7 players in Madden’s first ever 99 Club.
Throughout the history of Madden, NFL legends have resided at the peak of the ratings mountain. As we welcome a new cast of 99 club members for Madden 19, here is a look at what past and present 99s have brought to the game.
A 99 OVR is the highest rating possible in Madden. Ratings in Madden are updated based on the real-life performance and skill set, so attributes like Speed, Catch, and Tackle are all accounted for. In this modern era of Madden, these ratings get updated weekly. If somebody has a monster week, you’ll see their ratings jump up.
For example, Atlanta Falcons’ wide receiver Julio Jones was standing at a 98 OVR last season. Then, on Week 12, he torched the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with 12 catches, 253 yards, and two touchdowns. As a result of that game, his Madden ratings was bumped up to a 99 OVR.
