Beckham named finalist in Madden cover vote

New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has a 25 percent chance of appearing as the next cover athlete for the upcoming Madden video game.

In perhaps the most exciting news of the offseason related to an American football video game, Odell Beckham Jr. was on Tuesday announced as one of four finalists to be featured on the cover of Madden NFL 16.

The newest version of one of America’s favorite video games won’t be released until August, but the cover athlete will be revealed in just five days according to the website of publisher EA Sports. When that happens it will be because fans voted for Beckham as their choice over three other finalists: Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson, New England tight end Rob Gronkowski, and Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown.

That’s some stiff competition for Beckham, who one year ago was nothing but a young player with potential. After a hamstring injury caused him to miss much of training camp, it looked like Beckham’s rookie season was destined to be a bust, but once healthy the first-round draft pick exploded onto the scene with 12 touchdowns and 1,305 receiving yards.

Superstitious Giants fans might be concerned about the rumored “Madden Jinx” that has befallen past cover athletes. The jinx is said to cause misfortune to follow whomever appears on the Madden cover. Stars like Vince Young and Peyton Hillis were never the same after achieving video game fame, but that might have been more about the players than the game.

Given how incredible his 2014 performance was, no one will be shocked if Beckham doesn’t reach the same heights in 2015, but appearing on the Madden cover could put more pressure on the young wide receiver.

We’re getting ahead of ourselves, though. Beckham has a lot of competition to beat if he wants to land the coveted role of Madden cover boy.

Brown was one of just three players who gained more receiving yards and caught more touchdown passes than Beckham did in 2014. With 1,698 yards (tops in the league) and 13 touchdowns (second among receivers), Brown has the numbers to support his candidacy for Madden immortality.

If the fans opt for a defensive star, Peterson will be their guy. The four-year veteran out of LSU has been a top cornerback since his rookie season and was part of one of the NFL’s best defenses in 2014. At 25 years old, Peterson appears poised to lead the Cardinals into the future.

However, the favorite to be on the Madden NFL 16 cover has to be Rob Gronkowski. The charismatic tight end has been limited by injuries throughout his career, but in 2014 he played in 15 regular season games and was nearly unstoppable with 1,124 receiving yards and 12 touchdown catches (and that doesn’t count him scoring in each Patriots playoff game).

Gronk’s combination of infectious personality and dominating on-field persona make him the most likely cover boy. We’ll have to wait and see if Beckham can pull off the upset.
