As you can see in the image above, Barry Sanders is the official cover athlete for the upcoming Madden NFL 25.

Barry Sanders was INCREDIBLY difficult to tackle. His body frame and the way he was built made his center of gravity so low that it gave him one hell of an advantage. There will probably never be another RB like him. That was one tough S.O.B. there.
Well deserved. Would have been cool to just go ahead and feature both athletes though, IMO. But I remember fondly watching Barry run all over defenses as a kid.
Barry Sanders went to my High School and graduated from it. Wichita North High School in Wichita KS, played for Wichita North High Redskins. I've even met him after North high won state championship. He's really awesome.
Shoulda been Greg Jennings. Dude carries the team on his back with three broken legs.
i predict this madden will be the best football game ever, its only right barry's on the cover
How about paying tribute and putting Pat Summerall on the cover?
Barry was the greatest player I've ever seen play. He was incredible, but the Lions weren't.
Back to back Lions players, I see.
Good go'in for Barry.
Detroit Lions on Madden covers 2 years in a row? The end is near!
good choice,nice cover also
With regards to Madden franchise and in the immortal words of Butthead, "You can't polish a turd Beavis"
A great choice for the anniversary edition
2nd best RB of all time but I was really hoping that best ever wr Jerry Rice would have been on the cover
