PHOTO: Barry Sanders is new Madden NFL cover boy

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

Celebrating its upcoming 25th season, the makers of EA Sports' Madden NFL decided its cover boy should end with a showdown between an old-school and a new-school player.

Among the old-school candidates were players like Joe Montana, Michael Strahan and Jerry Rice, but ultimately, the final vote was between former Lions star running back Barry Sanders and current Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson.

The voting results were released Wednesday night, and without further ado, here is what your next copy of Madden will look like (via SportsNation).



Not a bad look for one of the best running backs of all time. Not bad at all.
