Odell Beckham is the Madden 16 Cover Athlete
The ballots are in and the votes have been tallied. Your EA Sports Madden 16 Cover athlete is…
…Odell Beckham Jr.!!!
The New York Giants wide receiver beat out Rob Gronkowski in the final to become the youngest ever Madden cover athlete—at 22 years of age. He is also the first member of the Giants to grace the cover of the popular video game.
Beckham took the NFL by storm during his rookie season in 2014, accumulating a remarkable 91 receptions, 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in just 12 games.
Here’s a look at the official announcement from the EA Sports Madden NFL Twitter account:

And here’s Beckham’s response after the announcement was made:
Man I just personally wanna thank all the love and support from everybody for voting today !! It’s mean so much to be on the cover of Madden

Now we just have to wait and see what type of pose they choose to use for Beckham’s cover. My guess is it will involve him making some sort of one-handed catch.
