Watch Madden 21 Cover Star's Teammates React To Seeing Him On The Box

Some of Lamar Jackson's teammates react to seeing him on the cover of this year's Madden game.


Madden NFL 21 will be formally announced on June 16, but ahead of that, the NFL's social media page The Checkdown has posted a teaser where NFL stars react to the cover.

We know that Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is on the cover, but the cover itself has not been released. EA Sport showed it to some of Jackson's teammates, and their reactions are priceless. In this video, Mark Ingram, Willie Snead, Orlando Brown Jr., Mark Andrews, Ronnie Stanley, and Justin Tucker share their thoughts on the cover. They are all really excited for their teammate; some can't even get words out. It's a pretty wonderful video--have a look below.

Now Playing: Patrick Mahomes Talks Madden 21 | Inside Xbox

Jackson was recently in the news after a viral video showed him playing football on the beach, before taking a tumble over a jet ski and falling into the water. Ravens fans were understandably worried, and there is no word yet on if he got hurt. Hopefully not.

Madden NFL 21 will be revealed with a first trailer tomorrow, June 16, and then EA will presumably speak more about it during the EA Play event on June 18. The game is confirmed for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, as well as Xbox Series X. A PS5 edition has not been announced yet, but it's expected.

Everyone who buys Madden 21 on Xbox One can get the Xbox Series X edition for free as part of a limited-time upgrade program. In other Madden news, the NFL has voted to give EA the exclusive rights simulation NFL games for years to come.
