For the second consecutive year a New England Patriot will grace the cover of the famed Madden video game released this summer.

Tom Brady was announced on Friday morning to be appearing on the cover of Madden 18, which will be labeled as the "Goat Edition" for the five-time winning Super Bowl Champion.  He will become the oldest cover athlete ever for the Madden franchise at the age of 40.

Brady will try to avoid the "Madden Curse" that has plagued other football stars that have graced the cover over the years.  Last season Rob Gronkowski was the cover star for the Madden game and was injured, later missing the 2016 playoffs and Super Bowl run. The game based on the NFL will be released on August 25th and will be available for the Xbox One and PS4 consoles
