Madden 21: Lamar Jackson cover star, rating reveal, MVP Edition artwork, early access & more
The Baltimore Ravens star quarterback will be EA’s new star. He’s on the cover of Madden 21.
Madden 21 is coming soon, and it’s generated plenty of hype.
Now that we know Lamar Jackson will hold down the cover slot this year, it’s almost time to learn his OVR rating.
Madden 21 cover star & artwork
The reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson confirmed that he will be on the front cover of the EA Sports franchise.
It’s not a shock given his stellar play in 2019 and that he has been a near-unbeatable player in Ultimate Team all throughout Madden 20.
The artwork has also been completely reworked, giving Lamar a unique place in Madden history. Not bad for a running back…
We haven’t gotten all of the Madden 21 ratings just yet, but we have gotten the upcoming rookies, and can expect some members of the 99 OVR club to come Monday, 13 July, thanks to this tweet from the EA Madden Twitter account.
We’re hoping to see Lamar Jackson in the club, and a big reveal for the cover star would be a very welcomed sight as we approach release.
For years Madden cover stars would suffer injuries and shocking performances during the season when they were on the front of the game.
In recent years though, that’s been broken. Tom Brady went to the Super Bowl after his Madden 18 cover, and Patrick Mahomes just won the Lombardi Trophy despite being on the Madden 20 cover.
We’re sure Lamar’s quick feet will keep him out of trouble.
Madden 21 release date
Lamar Jackson as cover athlete is the first piece of news we’ve had about Madden 21.
Be it a trailer or confirmation of Lamar, or even a release date, keep an eye out for something about Madden 21 soon!
