The question of who will be the cover athlete of the annual release of the new iteration of Madden is always anticipated, but it appears as we already know the answer before Madden 19 has planned to reveal him.
Last month, Terrell Owens was revealed as the cover athlete for the Hall of Fame Edition, with a standard cover being released on August 10. An image of that standard cover has been released, and Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown graces it.
While it’s yet to be announced, #Steelers WR Antonio Brown is expected to be the cover athlete for Madden 19.

Brown is arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL, coming off yet another 1,200 yard, 100 reception, and eight touchdown season – his whopping fifth straight.
