Brady, Mahomes on Madden 22 cover
Madden 22's two GOATs have been revealed.
The star quarterbacks will be on the first two-player cover since Troy Polamalu and Larry Fitzgerald in 2010. Brady was previously on the cover in 2018, while Mahomes was featured in 2020.
"Whenever you first get on the cover, that's a special moment," Mahomes told ESPN's Michael Rothstein. "So to be on it again, twice, with an all-time great like Tom Brady, it's a special moment that I'm glad that I'm able to do so soon after I had done it the first time.
"I'll be able to have it for the rest of my life and be able to show my kids and my kids' kids that I was on it two times."
Brady's Buccaneers beat Mahomes' Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. It was Brady's seventh championship, and the veteran's first since joining Tampa Bay prior to the 2020 season.
"To think that now, almost 30 years later, 25 years later, since the mid-90s, here I am representing EA on the cover of Madden with one of the other great players in the NFL right now," Brady said. "And just thinking how fortunate I've become over the years to put myself in this position to have these experiences in my life that I'm very grateful for.
"So it's a really cool thing. It's definitely a huge honor, and getting to do it with Patrick and the career he's had has been exceptional."
Madden 22 is set to be released Aug. 22.
