The game is released in Aug. 10 and you can bet Brown is ready to play as himself.

“To be on the cover is a real honor I’ve wanted to always have because I have so much connection with the game,” Brown said. “Growing up as a kid I played Madden all the time, was being inspired by the players in the game. And now to be on the cover, it’s a special feeling.”

Brown, 30, was drafted in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Steelers. The Central Michigan product had just 16 catches as a rookie in 2010 before posting his first 1,000 yard season the following year.

Brown is coming off his fifth consecutive 100-catch season. He made 101 receptions for 1,533 yards and nine touchdowns in 2017.

He has 733 catches for 9,910 yards and 59 touchdowns in his first eight NFL seasons.
