However, considering how early it's in the procedure and that EA has not verified Derrick Henry is the cover star however, there's a chance it could be somebody else entirely. Henry is a good option, but he is not the only one out there that would match.
Even though there isn't even confirmation that Madden NFL 22 is really coming this season, it appears as though there is going to be another installment in the series. That's one reason it seems like the rumors of Henry making the cover are true. EA may not have made the statement, but there is very likely to be someone being showcased. Running backs are few and far between when it comes to this honor though, as recent history hints which quarterback is more likely to get the nod.
Tom Brady has been around a Madden NFL cover before. However, there is no rule which says an athlete can't do it . Not only did the ageless quarterback post among those better campaigns in the league this past season, but what he accomplished in the 2020-21 season has enough of a"story-book" texture that Electronic Arts may not be able to resist.
He did this in his era 43 season. Despite a new team and some time in his profession most players have already long ago retired, he posted one of the finest seasons of his career. After casting 40 touchdowns to just 12 interceptions and for 4,633 yards, he finished off the campaign by beating a second former Madden NFL cover athlete at Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl.
What better way to observe what will almost certainly be a fully next-generation version of Madden NFL 22 than placing among the following generation of celebrities on the match cover? Third-year quarterback Josh Allen just keeps getting better and better.
