Though it seemed like Tom Brady obtained every accolade possible during his illustrious career, one notable pedestal he never reached was being the Madden cover athlete. Even that is now checked off the list.
For the first time, the Patriots QB will grace the cover of EA Sport’s Madden NFL 18: G.O.A.T. Edition, a game which will feature some of the NFL’s all-time greats.
Along with the announcement that Brady will be on the cover, EA released a trailer for the new game:
The cover comes after arguably Brady’s best season ever at age 39, capped off by the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.
“The Madden NFL 18 cover is a great honor for me,” said Brady. “Especially since I have been playing the game since growing up next to EA headquarters in the Bay Area. I’m not one to believe in curses, so I’m ready to take the challenge head on like always! It doesn’t stand a chance!!!”
If there’s one player to break the curse, it’s probably Brady.
