This just in. There will be football in 2012…at least of the electronic kind.
EA Sports recently announced that they will allow the fans to vote for the cover athlete to feature on their flagship NFL video game Madden12. The vote will take place online in a bracket style competition at www.ESPN.com/MaddenVote.
The winner will be announced April 27 on ESPN’s SportsNation.
One player from each NFL team is among the finalists. We didn’t create the list, but here at Bleacher Report it’s our job to break it down and tell you the players we think are most, and least, ready for their close-up. And, of course, invite you to do the same.
Before you fill out your bracket, this slideshow will let you know—in some cases with our tongue firmly in our cheek—which NFL star deserves to make the cut.
