Antonio Brown among final four for Madden 16 cover

If you believe in the Madden cover curse, start stuffing the ballot box for the other three NFL players in the running besides Antonio Brown.

The Steelers receiver joins Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., and Cardinals corner Patrick Peterson. 

Brown was an unstoppable force in 2014, leading the league with 129 catches and 1,698 receiving yards. 

This wouldn't be the Steelers' first brush with the alleged Madden cover jinx, which has claimed several victims since the game began featuring players on the cover in 1999. Troy Polamalu suffered a sprained knee in the season opener on the heels of his Madden cover, and was limited to just five games that year. 


The only thing you can do to prevent it from happening again is vote!
