During a Zoom call with reporters Tuesday afternoon, Lamar Jackson broke the news that he will be the cover boy for the Madden 21 video game.
Naturally, he made the announcement in the most laid-back manner imaginable.

Jackson also shrugged off any notion of a “Madden curse,” noting that Patrick Mahomes was on the cover a year ago, and the 2019 season worked out pretty well for him. Tom Brady also recently won a Super Bowl the year after gracing the video game’s cover.
Heisman, NFL MVP, Madden cover; the honors continue to pile up for arguably(?) the most exciting Louisville athlete of our time.
