Tom Brady Is The New Cover Athlete For Madden NFL 18

Posted May 13, 2017

EA Sports announced on Friday that Tom Brady would grace the cover of Madden NFL 18, and that the game would also have a special "G.O.A.T" edition with Brady on the front.

It marks the first cover appearance for Brady.

Edelman has never made a Pro Bowl, but did make the biggest catch in Patriots history in Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons in Houston. In fact, he's "ready to take the challenge head on like always!" The Patriots franchise quarterback laughed off the idea of curses, and even posted a video of himself breaking a mirror and walking under a ladder to make a point. Every dollar buys four meals for the hungry.

For years, there was frequent talk about the "Madden Curse," as cover athletes seemed to either get hurt of have subpar seasons during the year they were featured.

"I suppose there's been some reality to that curse over the years", Brady said.

The legend of the "Madden Curse" began in 1998 when Garrison Hearst appeared on the cover of a Madden NFL '99 and broke his ankle later that year. "I grew up not far from the headquarters of EA Sports and some of my neighbors and best friends worked there".

Brady told ESPN he doesn't play as much "Madden" as he didn't when he was younger, but added that "my son Jack loves beating up on me". Then there is the GOAT Edition, which includes all the basic edition goodies, plus one of five GOAT players of your choice for Madden NFL 18 Ultimate Team.
