Saints QB Drew Brees in Madden NFL 11 Cover Athlete

BOOM widget 126718 This year, fans voted on which player should be honored (and cursed?) with a featured spot on the cover of Electronic Arts' Madden NFL 11. Winning the vote is New Orleans' Saints quarterback and Super Bowl XLIV champion and MVP Drew Brees.

Brees was up against Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen and Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne, which in my opinion, made Brees a sure-thing to snag the cover.


"The Madden NFL franchise holds a special place in popular culture and the cover is a coveted position for players all over the league," said Brees. "I'm honored to be the first cover athlete chosen by Madden NFL fans and it's a great way to cap off an amazing year for the Saints and the city of New Orleans."

Madden NFL 11 will be released on August 10 on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, Wii, PSP, and mobile platforms including iPhone OS.
