And The Madden 16 Cover Athlete Is...

By Mark Delaney, 2 years ago
Some call him ODB, some call him OBJ, EA Sports now calls him cover star. New York Giants second year wideout Odell Beckham Jr., after having one of the most dominant rookie seasons of all-time, will be gracing the box art for this August's Madden NFL 16. Beckham beat our Rob Gronkowski in the finals today live on SportsCenter after a fan vote began last week that also included Antonio Brown and Patrick Peterson. His athleticism has been likened to Michael Jordan's and lead to one of the prettiest catches the sport has ever seen. This, along with his weekly dominance, propelled him to the height of sports gaming stardom.


Madden NFL 16 comes out this August.
