When it comes to Madden, two things matter from March until the game is released: free agents and rookies.

Not only are you enamored with the thought of all these players going to new teams, but you start thinking of what teams are you going to use the most when the new Madden 16 comes out.

Madden 16 might be the craziest game yet, in terms of new faces. Not only have their been plenty of moves this offseason, but the rookie class is slated to be the deepest, talented class in a long time. Especially with how much mock drafts are valued, the different possibilities where the top rookies could land provides never-ending intrigue. Let's take a look at the 10 rookies that will be in Madden 16 that will be on your radar when playing online or on connected franchise.

Now appearing in Miami.

Watching the NFL free agency period play out in 2015, I find myself wanting to equate it to the trading and free agency system in Madden 15, by EA Sports. If members of an online CFM tried to pull these trade tactics, they would either be mocked endlessly, or flat out banned from the league. With that said though, just as in any given NFL free agency period, there were some clear winners, clear losers, and moves that just flat out made no sense.

The NHL always seems to be reviewing new ways to create offense, reduce injuries and increase excitement for fans, and this off-season looks to be no exception. The general managers of all 30 NHL teams usually table various ideas, and those ideas are mulled over by the NHLPA and the “competition committee.” If both sides can find agreement, the league ratifies the new rules and usually implements them for the next season.

There are three big ideas that are getting traction this year, including a modified overtime format to reduce shootouts, a challenge system for controversial plays and a revamp of the all-star game to provide more excitement for fans. All of these would be interesting to see reflected in NHL 16, but depending on how elaborate some of this gets, it might be something that has to be patched in.
