Lamar Jackson Reveals the Big News
In a live media call, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson revealed he will be on the cover of Madden 21. This is a very high honor for Jackson and something he has been wanting ever since he was a kid. The reigning 2019 NFL MVP makes perfect sense as the cover of Madden. Lamar Jackson is absolutely electric with the ball in his hands. Similar to Michael Vick in Madden 2004, Jackson is proving to be a match-up nightmare in real-life, as well as on Madden. Some Ravens fans will be worried about the “Madden Curse”, but many recognize this is just superstition. After all, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs just won Super Bowl 54 with Mahomes being on the cover of Madden 20.
Ravens Madden Cover History
Lamar Jackson joins Ray Lewis as the only other Ravens’ athlete to be on the cover of Madden. Ray Lewis was on the cover of Madden 2005. After earning two Defensive Player of the Year awards in three seasons, as well as a Super Bowl MVP award, Lewis deserved to be on the cover of Madden. Lewis’ Madden cover season was cut short due to an injury early in the season.
