We are at the height of Madden 21 ratings season, but one particular reveal has our attention.

Madden 21 was expected to have four 99 Club members.

A recent teaser posted to the ESPN Twitter account, however, shows a fifth member is coming.

So who will it be?

99 Club

The 99 OVR mark is a prestigious group of the best players in the NFL, comprised only of the most elite from both sides of the football.

According to a new teaser, however, one more player is joining the club.

Who will it be?

There are many candidates for the coveted fifth spot in this year’s 99 Club. We can eliminate many thanks to the ratings reveals we’ve gotten so far for RB’s, QB’s, CB’s, FS’s, and pass rushers.

That leaves one very noticeable category that includes a player who stands apart from the pack after an extremely successful 2019.
