After 20 million votes and over 2 months of hype, the Madden 13 cover athlete has been announced. Calvin Johnson will be on the cover of this year’s Madden NFL game after his dominant performance last year. The road to the cover wasn’t an easy one for Megatron. He started as a 6 seed and had to beat a handful of very popular players like Dwayne Bowe, Arian Foster, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Rodgers, and Cam Newton in the finals.
Last year, Peyton Hillis won the cover vote but then followed with a disastrous season causing some fans to claim that the “Madden Curse” is back. Let’s hope this year’s cover athlete does not fall to the “Madden Curse.”
