The Pittsburgh Steelers’ superstar wide receiver Antonio Brown will be the face of Madden NFL 19, on the back of a season where he registered over 100 receptions for around 1,600 yards. The six-time Pro Bowler is one of seven players with a 99 rating in the game, and is the first star to be featured without his helmet on.
Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Brown said that he was not concerned about the Madden curse: “You gotta stay focused,” he admitted. “Obviously this is a tremendous honour, you can't get caught up in worrying about what others believe. I'm extremely focused and excited to be in everyone's household, to let them see me in my Steelers uniform representing my club.”
Brown will be on the cover of the standard version of Madden NFL 19, while Terrell Owens will head up the Hall of Fame Edition. The game’s officially due out on 10th August, but you will be able to get it a few days earlier if you pay a little extra.
