  • Odell Beckham Jr. Is Madden NFL 16 Cover Athlete

    The votes have been tallied and the winner of the Madden NFL 16 cover athlete vote is Odell Beckham Jr. The New York Giants Wide Receiver beat out the Patriots' Rob Gronkowski for the honor.

    Beckham is one of the NFL's most explosive playmakers, highlighting an exceptional rookie season with an electrifying one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys in primetime. In his rookie season, Beckham broke out with over 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns, despite playing in only 12 games.

    "Odell Beckham Jr. is a true playmaker and a perfect fit for this year's game," said Randy Chase, Senior Director of Marketing for EA SPORTS. "He's an unstoppable force out on the field, and the Madden NFL 16 cover is further vindication that the fans believe he's a player to watch in the coming years."

    EA Sports also released the first teaser for the game (seen below). Madden NFL 16 will include new "playmaking tools that highlight the battle for Air Supremacy." Madden NFL 16 is also now available for pre-order from most retailers. Pre-orders include $15 in Ultimate Team content. A Deluxe Edition of Madden NFL 16 includes 36 Pro Packs and a Playmaker Pack for MUT for $69.99 (USD).
