He’s the first Madden cover star from a losing team. The first with no Pro Bowl appearances at the time of his selection. He led NFL running backs in one statistical category last year – fumbles.
Michael Vick, who returned to the NFL in 2009 after a two-year prison sentence for running a dogfighting ring, was the second-biggest winner (by percentage) in the first round of EA Sports’ fan-voted playoff for the Madden NFL 12 cover.
As we reported Friday, EA Sports will add Michael Vick to its Madden NFL 10 roster on Aug. 19, pending league approval. ESPN got a hold of his game attributes, and as expected, he’s off his Madden 08 form.
