Odell Beckham Jr., I hope....This is supposed to be about air supremacy, and Beckham has that speed and deep ability...Gronk is a crossing pattern player that for some reason teams haven't gotten wise to covering...

I am willing to predict that, considering the current issue with the Patriots, Beckham has this cover..

Odell is a lock to win the madden cover vote. I'm sure the NFL / EA doesn't want any Patriots on the cover of their only licensed football video game for 2016 after their latest scandal.

You know now that you mention it, A Patriot would be perfect for the cover of Madden......

Odell Beckham.

Even though he plays for a rival team...

At least he isn't a Patriot.

Let's write-in Jerry Rice back on the cover, a WR who admitted using stickum.

Lol people are so media driven its pathetic.. A good rookie season and a great catch that was shoved down our throats is the only reason Beckham is there.. Smh...

Maybe I'm crazy, but wasn't Odell Beckham Jr. one of the ten (maybe five) best receivers in football last year?

It has to be Gronk. Super Bowl champ deserves it. As good as ODB Jr is, he's only been in the league one year. Let him earn his stripes 1st.

Can't be Gronk. He's too closely associated with Brady.. You know the QB that is suspended 4 games for "cheating"..lol. Maybe, a slight chance if Gronk were a DB or RB but no way cause he was the main target of catching Brady "deflated" balls...lol

It's not like they asked Odell to be the face of the NFL or they're naming him the greatest receiver of all time, lol. It's just the cover of Madden. He had a good rookie campaign, if he gets it so be it.

Not trying to be a jerk here getting that out of the way from the start. By that logic though, why wasn't Sammy Watkins included in the vote? He Did a little more than one catch with a mediocre QB at best. The cover vote is a joke. Just pick your guy and be done with it. Not fair to the other guys to be strung along when you set it up for one player to win.

Anyways, I'm still rooting for Gronk. A guy that doesn't like Madden on the cover just speaks to my relationship with this game.

Those gloves are ridiculous. I used some from a sporting goods store and they were probably tame to what NFL players have. It enhances your ability to catch so much and even helps throw the football. That's why some QB's throw with gloves

Sammy Watkins had 65 catches and less than 1,000 yards receiving.

Brown was number 1 wr, Gronk was the top te in the league, Beckham's rookie season was the best since Randy Moss. All 3 were worthy choices to me. Harder to judge DBs statistically, but Patrick Peterson is as good or better than any corner in the league.

He obv hates the Giants being a Bills fan and is jealous OBJ is getting so much media coverage and having better season than first WR taken in draft last year. His first comment says it all.

Yea that's it you got me. Good for you.

Honestly I can't wait till they pick a guy to slap on the cover so we can get this dog and pony show started. I need a good laugh....
