Can Odell Beckham Jr. avoid the Madden curse?

New York’s newest football star is now a video game star.

It’s official.

During a segment of ESPN’s SportsCenter this week, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was revealed as the cover athlete who will appear on the packaging of Madden NFL 16, the next iteration of the hottest sports video game around.

Beckham, who gained 1,305 receiving yards and hauled in 12 touchdown receptions in just 12 games for the Giants during his breakout 2014 campaign, defeated Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski in a vote amongst America’s football fans.

EA Sports says that Beckham is the perfect athlete to represent Madden’s “be the playmaker” tagline.

“Odell Beckham Jr. is a true playmaker and a perfect fit for this year’s game,” said Randy Chase, Senior Director of Marketing for EA SPORTS, “He’s an unstoppable force out on the field, and the Madden NFL 16 cover is further vindication that the fans believe he’s a player to watch in the coming years.”

Unfortunately for many Madden athletes of the past, appearing on the cover has been more of an indicator of past success than a predictor of future success. Players like Vince Young and Peyton Hillis were promoted as stars of the future, only to fall short. The misfortune of players appearing on the cover had led some to believe that there is a curse associated with the game.

“I don’t really believe in curses much,” Beckham said, according to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News. “A curse is something somebody wishes upon you.”

That’s good, because the Giants need Beckham to be outstanding again if they hope to compete in a loaded NFC East. Even if Beckham plays all 16 games in 2015, it will be tough for him to replicate his numbers from last year.

He doesn’t need to, though. With the potential return of Victor Cruz from knee surgery, Beckham only needs to be a cog in New York’s offensive machine. We might not see a catch like the one he made against Dallas again, but if the wins pile up for the Giants, Beckham will continue to shine.

Madden NFL 16 will hit retailers on August 25, just in time for the start of the NFL regular season. You can bet that when the Giants start their campaign on September 13 against the Cowboys, extra special attention will be paid to Beckham, whose appearance on the Madden cover will only increase the heavy expectations placed on him for 2015.
