PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - For fans of the Madden football video games, the 2019 edition is “Boomin”.

Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown was named Wednesday as the cover athlete for Madden 19. Brown is one of seven other players with a 99 overall rating in the game.

"I am beyond honored to be on the cover of both Madden games," Brown said in an release from EA. "There's a lot of milestones athletes dream of, and after being inducted into the Madden 99 Club earlier this year, and now appearing on the cover of this year's games, it's clear that business is not just booming, but I'm also among the all-time greatest with these honors."

The game will be available worldwide on August 10.

Brown will also be the cover athlete for the mobile game “Madden NFL Overdrive”.

AB is the first Steelers player to grace the cover of the Madden football game since 2010 when Troy Polamalu appeared with Arizona Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald.
