Bettis, Brown In Running For Madden 25 Cover
With Andrew McCutchen already gracing the cover of MLB13 The Show, Pittsburgh fans will have a chance to put another athlete from the ‘Burgh on another video game cover.
The ever-popular Madden franchise is holding a voting contest to name the cover athlete for the upcoming 25th anniversary of the game.
A total of 64 players (32 current vs. 32 legends) have been broken up into four brackets. Winners in each matchup will be determined by fan voting.
Steelers fans will be happy to know that Antonio Brown and Jerome Bettis are in the running.
Brown is up against New England tight end Rob Gronkowski, while “The Bus” is up against former New York Jets running back Curtis Martin.
Martin also played his senior season at Taylor Allderdice High School and went on play at the University of Pittsburgh.
Voting for the first round is open now and will close on March 20.
