The Madden cover has a long history of featuring some of the NFL’s premier talent. From young upstarts to Hall of Famers, landing on the cover is a symbol of greatness.
This season, nobody personifies that greatness more than Antonio Brown, the Pro Bowl wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Brown was once considered undersized for the NFL. After falling in the 2010 NFL Draft, 21 WRs were chosen before him. Since then though, AB has solidified himself among the NFL elite, breaking both league and team records as he continues to dominate the field.
Not only is AB the cover athlete for Madden 19, he’s the game’s best WR with a 99 OVR. He’s not the fastest WR in the game, but his 99 rating in both Catch and Catch in Traffic makes him the most reliable target out there.
His 98 Agility also gives him some quick-cut ability. The biggest gameplay addition to this season is Real Player Motion, which provides players the ability to make quick, more realistic cuts upfield after the catch. A player with AB’s ratings can take full advantage of the new gameplay control this season.
But part of what AB is known for in the NFL are his celebrations, as well as his skills. New animations, also brought with Real Player Motion, deliver realistic celebrations to the game. So, after scoring the big, game-winning touchdown, players will now be able to dance like their favorite players, including AB.
Antonio Brown delivers greatness to both the Madden 19 cover and in gameplay. Business is boomin’ with Brown in your lineup.
