Brown, who was previously a finalist for the cover of “Madden 16” before losing to Odell Beckham Jr. in a fan vote, is the first player to be featured on the cover without a helmet on.

“To be on the cover is a real honor I’ve wanted to always have because I have so much connection with the game,” Brown said, via ESPN. “Growing up as a kid I played Madden all the time, was being inspired by the players in the game. And now to be on the cover, it’s a special feeling.”
Brown, who turns 31 this month, led the league in receiving with 1,533 yards last season. The six-time Pro Bowl and four-time All-pro selection also boasts an NFL-record five straight 100-catch seasons.
“Madden 19” will be available Aug. 10.
