Four of football’s top stars are competing for the chance to grace the Madden NFL 16 cover. There are several ways to put in your vote this year, as you’ll get the chance to support New England Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski, Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, NY Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., and Pittsburgh Steelers Wide Receiver Antonio Brown.
Fans can vote by playing the free to play app Madden NFL Mobile and Madden Ultimate Team in Madden NFL 15. Players can vote once each day by logging onto Madden NFL Mobile and earn more votes by completing special live events (essentially, more playing equals more votes). Madden Ultimate Team participants can cast one vote by logging in and another four total when playing Solo Challenges.
As much as I’m a huge fan of Antonio Brown’s skills and Beckham Jr.’s acrobatic prowess, I’ve got a feeling that Rob Gronkowski’s innate charm and media prowess (of course he’s also insanely talented) should win him the cover vote.
Voting for the first round ends May 11, with the two finalists revealed the following day. The Madden NFL 16 cover athlete will be announced on ESPN on SportsCenter (6 pm et).
