EA Sports Madden 19, the latest installation of the game is due to release on August 10, and Pittsburg Steelers’ WR Antonio Brown is going to be gracing its cover. The ‘Hall of Fame’ edition is available for pre-order and will get the user loads of Madden Ultimate Team content and access to the full game three days early.
The Madden cover has featured some of the biggest stars of the game including Eddie George, Michal Vick, Tom Brady and this time Antonio Brown steals the show.
Not only does Brown make it to the cover of the latest edition of EA Sports Madden but also has the game’s best OVR at 99 of a WR. Although not the quickest, his Catch and Catch in Traffic make him one of the most reliable players in his position in the game. He also gets an Agility rating of 98.
This year, Madden 19 also gets an important gameplay addition — the Real Player Motion. This gameplay feature “provides players the ability to make quick, more realistic cuts upfield after the catch”.

“Brown was once considered undersized for NFL. After falling in the 2010 NFL Draft, 21 WRs were chosen before him. Since then though, AB has solidified himself among the NFL elite, breaking bot league and team records as he continues to dominate the field,” EA Sports mentioned in a blog post.
