The big quarterback signings in the NFL continue. Last week Philadelphia made waves when they announced the signing of controversial QB Michael Vick. While the Eagles proved to be a surprising destination for Vick, absolutey zero people are surprised by today's news that Brett Favre will reportedly sign a contract to play the season with the Minnesota Vikings, a team that Favre has been connected to throughout the off-season despite being informed by Favre on July 28 of his intention to stay retired.
For Madden fans, the questions are: Will Favre make it into tomorrow's roster update that will put Vick with the Eagle and what will his ratings be? We still don't have an answer to either but expect them soon, as the Madden development team has been very vocal about player ratings this year. Stay tuned for an update as soon as we find out when Favre will be in Madden 10 and how he'll play.
In the meantime, do you think the 39-year-old Favre will make an impact with the Vikings this season?
[UPDATE: According to a Twitter post by EA Sports PR manager Rob Semsey, Brett Favre will be included in the August 19 roster update. Favre's official ratings below.]
[UPDATE 2: The ratings table below has changed because, according to EA reps, some of the ratings categories in Madden NFL 10 did not exist in Madden NFL 09. I've updated the table below, according to EA Sports' revised information.]
|Attribute||Madden 10||Madden 09||Change|
|Short Accuracy||77||NA ||-|
|Throw on Run||72||NA||-|
