Madden 13 Cover Goes To Calvin Johnson From The Detroit Lions

It's official: Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson will be on the cover of Madden 13. Johnson, more awesomely known as Megatron, barely beat out rookie quarterback and fantasy football sensation Cam Newton by snagging 52% of the vote.

The announcement of the Madden cover, which comes every year right before the start of the NFL Draft in New York City, is one of the annual off-season highlights football fans look forward to during the sad time of late February through August. Over the course of the Madden 13 cover voting, Johnson accumulated over 19 million nods from fans around the world, due in no small part to his electrifying play and completely face-meltingly amazing nickname. 

While being on the cover of Madden can do great things in terms of a player's image, it can also strike fear in the hearts of football fans everywhere because of the so-called Madden Curse. Megatron, however, does not believe in such nonsense

Only time will tell whether or not the 6'5" receiver will be able to outrun the curse, but in the meantime, I'm sure Cam Newton is sitting in a corner somewhere, writing thank you notes to everyone who voted for Johnson just in case.
