Richard Sherman has topped Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in the Madden 15 Cover Athlete finals that is voted by the fans. Sherman is just the third defensive player ever to be on the cover of a Madden video game.
“It’s an unbelievable experience. It’s something you’ve always dreamed about as a little kid. Something you never expect to happen,” Sherman said shortly after he was awarded the cover. “It’s a humbling experience to do it in front of all these great people, and do it for the city of Seattle. It’s fantastic.”
EA Sports Madden NFL 15 drops on August 26 and will be available on the PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
