EA Sports decided to do something a bit different this time around and allowed fans to vote for which athlete they believe should grace the cover of Madden NFL 12. The voting ended yesterday after going since March 21st and Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis will have the honor of being the next cover athlete for Madden. He beat out Michael Vick who was his closest runner with a total of 12.7 million votes between the two.
Now all Cleveland Browns fans can do is hope that the Madden Curse doesn’t strike Peyton Hillis this upcoming season if in fact there is a season this year. Either way though, Madden NFL 12 will be released on August 30th and football fans can get their Madden fix for the year.
