With an active first day of NFL free agency in the books, some folks out there might be chomping at the bit to play with some new faces in new places. If you have been holding out before using J.J. Watt with the Cardinals or Matthew Stafford with the Rams, then this Madden 21 free agent roster for PS5 from UnFadeable23 might hit the spot.
He has updated the PS5 rosters through the first full day of free agency, and this also includes a lot of the trades for the aforementioned big names like Stafford and Watt. To get this roster, you’ll need to do the following:
Madden 21 Free Agency Roster For PS5
Roster Name: Madden2022
In case you don’t know how it works in Madden, you need to go to the gear icon on the right side of the main menu, then go to “Share & Manage Files,” and then click on the panel called “Download Community Files” before searching for the user name listed above.
After you download the roster, you back out into that Share menu and you load the roster file from there. Madden Share can be finnicky at times, so if you can’t download the file for some reason, or the game freezes when trying to load the file, don’t panic. It’s annoying and it’s a bit random when it happens, but it will work eventually.
After you load the file, you’re good to go to play with it in Play Now or head into franchise mode. For PS4 owners who want to use this roster, sadly I don’t think there’s a way to get it. If you were going from PS4 to PS5, you could create a CFM on PS4 and then use the cloud save feature to then load that same CFM on PS5 (thus it would have the roster). However, you don’t own a PS5 version of the game without the console, so I don’t think there’s a way to reverse engineer this process.
Nevertheless, players like Ryan Fitzpatrick and Nelson Agholor are on their respective new teams after day one. This is also retroactive, so UnFadeable has been keeping up with cuts and so forth so the rosters should be in solid shape already.
On top of that, he has begun to start adding rookies. This is a work in progress and will continue on through the draft, but here are some of the NFL Draft prospects already included in the free agent pool:
- Trevor Lawrence
- Zach Wilson
- Justin Fields
- Trey Lance
- Mac Jones
- Jaylen Waddle
- Jamarr Chase
- Devonta Smith
- Kyle Pitts
On the PS4 end of things, a full draft that’s a bit outdated is out there that we highlighted previously, but I’m pretty sure the community will be doing new draft prospects as we head towards and through April. When that happens, we will of course highlight them for the wider audience on the consoles where they exist.
UnFadeable seems like he will be updating this roster each day as of now while free agency is hot. As that cools down, I assume he may slow his pace a bit as well. Either way, you just need to keep tracking the same singular roster and re-download each day as you see fit. He will be tuning depth charts and such as well during this process.
Thanks go out to UnFadeable for all the hard work, so be sure to give him some love on the forums if you use the file.
