Madden 22 Ratings: 99-Rated Players Revealed - WR, QB, And More

EA and ESPN will announce Madden 22's player ratings all week.


Madden 22's player ratings were revealed piece by piece on ESPN this week, and now we know ratings for the positions. Five of the 99 Club have been announced already, as well. Additionally, EA launched a new Madden 22 ratings website that allows you to search for any player and find their rating.

Wide receiver Davante Adams of the Green Bay Packers is the first 99-rated player to be revealed for Madden 22. It's not his first time as a member of the 99 Club, which is no surprise given how impressive a player he is. EA surprised Adams while he was golfing with a gift package containing a special 99 necklace and a note signed by John Madden himself--check out the video below.

Aaron Donald, a defensive tackle for the Los Angeles Rams, is the second 99 Club member. It is his fifth time getting the highest rating in Madden. You can check out the announcement video below.
