It's apparently between four players:
Rob Gronkowski, TE, Patriots
Odell Beckham Jr, WR, Giants
Antonio Brown, WR, Steelers
Patrick Peterson, CB, Cardinals

I like the selection this year. Even though I'm not buying it I want Antonio to win.

Who do you want to win?

Anyone but Odell please... so overhyped. Will be a great player but the other guys are much more deserving.

As much as I hate the Patriots, I love Gronk and hope he wins.

This is the worst group of cover athletes in a long time.

Patrick Peterson? Are you serious? Who's going to vote for this guy?
Antonio Brown? Wow.

Those guys are essentially day 1 eliminations, so it comes down to Gronk vs. Odell, or "party like it's 1999" guy vs "OMG INSANE CATCHES" guy. Just terrible.

It is thought that Brown and Patrick Peterson have no chance in hell. Its going to be a tossup between Gronk and ODB Jr.

Of course I won't get my way and Gronkowski will win it.

Edit: Oops. I accidentally voted for Gronk...I had one job.

I'd like to see Gronk on the cover, but I'm perfectly okay having OBJ 'win' it. Don't want the curse on the Pats this year. Wink

Madden covers have become a joke. The year that freaking Peyton Hillis made the cover, EA shouldve stopped doing fan votes. Most fans who vote are little kids and casual fans who know next to nothing about football aside from their favorite teams and what ESPN tells them.

Alot of people these days print off custom covers anyway.

Anyway, Gronk should win it if it came down to simply best player.

If Odell wins it...what a damn joke. Seriously, its getting annoying how kneejerk people are. Odell is great and he has plenty of years to make the cover. He doesnt deserve it after just a great rookie year.

Peterson? He isnt even top 3 at his position. Maybe not even top 5.

Antonio Brown was very arguably the best WR in the NFL last year and a top 3-5 WR overall....but I dont want him on the cover.

By default, its gotta be Gronk.

Madden covers alone are a reflection of what a joke the Madden series has become.

Yes...."wow" to a guy who just had one of the better WR seasons of all time and has proven/done more than Beckham to this point.

And its funny how you point out the two players who just so happen to be division rivals to two of your favorite teams.

But everyone knows you would complain about pretty much anyone who gets voted unless they played for one of the 7 teams you bandwagon.

Gronk deserves it the most more than any of those 3. He's always been a dominant madden player and NE won the SB last year so I can see how it makes sense

Wow 43. I've seen some swing and misses from you but this was BY FAR the biggest whiff of a post I've ever seen.

If you honestly think fan voting determines who is the "best" player, you're seriously misguided. It's about most popular, and Antonio Brown and Patrick Peterson stand no chance against the ESPN hype machines that run OBJ and Gronk.

It's not that I wouldn't want either of them on the cover, it's just that they stand no chance going up against Gronk and OBJ. I do, however, find it hilarious how instantly defensive you got about this whole thing though. Laughing

Now, go choke down some alcohol, watch some Terry Bradshaw highlights and calm down 43, everything's going to be okay!

Don't care who wins as long as it's not a Packer. Too paranoid. Curse or not, the mere mention of a curse makes me not want to tempt it.

Madden curse is not real. The last two current cover athletes (Richard Sherman for Madden 15 and Calvin Johnson for Madden 13... Barry Sanders was on Madden 25) had elite seasons. The year Calvin was on Madden 13, he broke the all-time receiving yards record and Sherman once again had an elite season as arguably the top CB in the game.


As far as the contenders this year. Brown and Gronk are very worthy as they are elite players. OBJ is exciting and had a really great rookie season even though he missed games to start out. Patrick Peterson? Lulz. Dude got cooked last season, it's a joke he is even in the conversation.
