Madden NFL 16 Odell Beckham

New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will appear on the cover of Madden NFL 16, EA Sports announced during a live segment on ESPN’s Sportscenter.

Beckham won a fan voting contest that came down to him and New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

“Odell Beckham Jr. is a true playmaker and a perfect fit for this year’s game,” EA Sports senior director of marketing Randy Chase said in a press release. “He’s an unstoppable force out on the field, and the Madden NFL 16 cover is further vindication that the fans believe he’s a player to watch in the coming years.”

Alongside the announcement, EA Sports also released a first look trailer for Madden NFL 16 featuring the four cover vote finalists. The trailer, which gives players their first glimpse at Madden 16 in action, can be viewed below.

Madden NFL 16 is set to release Aug. 25 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Quick Take

Beckham had an outstanding rookie campaign, catching for more than 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns. However, the reason why he’s on the cover of Madden 16 is his highlight-making ability, which made him an immediate star when he grabbed a one-handed catch in a primetime game against the Dallas Cowboys.
