Antonio Brown Addresses Being Named The Cover Athlete For 'Madden NFL 19'

The Pro Bowler declares he's now among the GOATs.

(AllHipHop News) It's that time of the year again. Electronic Arts officially unveiled the Madden NFL 19 and Madden NFL Overdrive cover athlete.

Pittsburgh Steelers star Antonio Brown is the latest face of the popular video game. Last month, the Pro Bowl wide receiver was announced as part of the exclusive Madden 99 Club, making him one of the elite players to get the coveted 99 OVR rating.

“I am beyond honored to be on the cover of both Madden games,” says 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.”

“AB has taken the league by storm the past few years and is arguably one of the best wide receivers to ever play in the NFL,” said Joshua Rabenovets, Sr. Brand Director at EA SPORTS. “His game is hot, he’s got a ton of personality on and off the field - he was an easy choice for the Madden NFL 19 cover.”

Purchasers of the Madden NFL 19 Hall of Fame Edition can play the full game up to three-days early starting August 7. Beginning August 2, EA Access and Origin Access members can demo Madden NFL 19 for 10 hours on Xbox One and Origin for PC. Origin Access Premier members can look forward to the full Madden NFL 19 game on PC on August 2nd.

Madden NFL 19 will be available worldwide for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on August 10.
