Steelers WR Antonio Brown In Running For Madden NFL 15 Cover

Voting for the player who will grace the cover of Madden NFL 15 opened on May 8 and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is one of 16 players in the running for it this year.

It’s a bracket format and Brown, who caught 110 passes for 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013, is going up against Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in the first round.

Brown was voted the Steelers team MVP in 2013 and his stellar season also resulted in him earning a second Pro Bowl selection.

Brown’s 1,499 receiving yards also set a new franchise record as he bested the number that Yancey Thigpen registered in 1997 by 101 yards.

Make sure to get your votes in today as the first round is set to close.

    Wasn’t it Yancey’s mark of 1398 he bested …

  • JohnB

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I always thought they should put the most talented guy that retired the last year so they wouldn’t have any more curse and it also would be a good sendoff for the guy.

  • CW

    I’m voting against it.

  • joed32

    I would vote for Flacco.

  • Soliciting Steelers

    If this happens, then Bryant will be starting WR this year, because Brown will get run over by the Schwan Man or some crap! Damn curse!

  • John C

    Get out there and vote…..FOR ANYONE BUT AB!!!! We don’t need the Madden curse around here!

  • Deuce22

    You’re dead on there Shawn, good catch.

  • SteelersDepot

    fart brains

  • The only player who something bad has not happened to is Calvin Johnson. Now I don’t believe in curses but I would also not want to be on there.

  • Pitfan0513

    NOOOO, don’t do it AB!!!!

  • steelersfan

    I don’t think he will win. Not worried

  • Jason

    I’m sure Manziel and Michael Sam will share the cover. Only makes sense being that evidently they were the only 2 players drafted last weekend if you listen to ESPN.

  • srdan

    It’s not a curse. People want to call it taht. Usually when people end up on the cover they had a monster season. Monster seasons take a toll on anyone. It’s hard to have consecutive ones.

  • Deuce22

    I disagree. Many players have had monster seasons back to back with no issue. Yes, it’s ironic that these players get hurt after being on Madden, but only one player has had a great season while being the cover boy, respectively it was Calvin Johnson…but his team also went 4-12 that year.

  • Matt Manzo

    I was so pissed at Yancy for going to Tennesee!

  • Kirby Hogenmiller

    Vote him OFFFFFF NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kirby Hogenmiller

    Vote AJ Green!

  • Steelers12328882

    I’d rather have Hard Knocks than AB on the Madden Cover!!! That curse ain’t no joke!

  • PA2AK

    Just looked at the sight. I think its on to rd 2 with Cam taking 80% of vote. SOLID.

  • Pitfan0513

    So glad Cam Newton beat him out!

  • MC

    I hate everything to do with this cover vote. For almost a decade EA has released the same c rappy game and built hype with this cover vote and CGI rendered trailers. They should focus their efforts on whats in the box not whats on the box.
    I understand i sound like a total nerd right now but i’ve played NFL games since I was 10.

  • Robert Loveless Reid

    Thats what they said…by 101 yards

  • Robert Loveless Reid

    It should be a member of the superbowl winning team…maybe Sherman!

  • shawn

    ur a little late … he updated it !

  • scott2443

    it would just be another distraction for him to deal with
