Even though baseball season has only just begun, it's not too early to start yearning for fall and the return of the NFL. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Madden NFL franchise, and EA has delivered an exclusive Madden NFL 25 screenshot to ESPN.

The image depicts Houston Texan Arian Foster knocking Denver Bronco Von Miller flat on his keister. Along with the visual comes a bit more information about the focus of this year's tweaks. EA Sports is promising that the “run free ball carrier feature” will create a greater sense of precision when in possession of the ball. It will be interesting to see if the team improves on the Connected Careers feature and restores elements lost in last year's iteration.
