Afraid of the Madden Curse?
Patriot fans, we've already been punched in the gut with the suspension of Tom Brady for 4 games this year, and the loss of the 1st round draft pick for next year! Do we really want to insure that Rob Gronkowski will be injured this season? That's what's on the line, if Rob Gronkowski wins the vote to be on the cover of Madden 2016!
EA Sports has announced that the two finalists for the cover slot are New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, and New York Giants wideout Odell Beckham Jr.
Don't believe in the curse? Prior to 2014 of the 18 players that have been featured on the cover of Madden NFL , 17 have had troubling or abruptly shortened seasons following their cover debut – including several players who suffered season-ending injuries soon after their appearance on a Madden NFLcover.
