San Francisco 49ers Christian McCaffrey Named as Cover Athlete for EA Sports Madden NFL 25

Not a surprise this superstar is on the cover. EA Sports

Electronic Arts and EA Sports announced that San Francisco 49ers superstar Christian McCaffrey is going to be on the cover of the upcoming title Madden NFL 25. For those following his career, it's probably not that surprising considering that he's the reigning NFL Offensive Player of the Year. He'll be on both covers of the Standard Edition and the Deluxe Editions.

McCaffrey led San Francisco to Super Bowl LVIII last season and cemented himself further in the process as one of the most consistent and explosive players in the league. He had 339 total touches, 2,023 scrimmage yards, and 21 total touchdowns. This represented NFL's bests of the year. That's not all since he also managed to tie a league record with 17 straight games with a touchdown.

Talking about this latest milestone in his career, McCaffrey shared in a statement that being on the cover of the game is a career achievement. He added that it's an honor that he shared with his teammates, coaches, and of course, all the 49er Faithful that helped make it happen. He added that he's excited to return to the field this year and give players of the game "more reasons to keep scoring touchdowns" with him.

Meanwhile Madden NFL Senior Production Director Mike Mahar revealed that McCaffrey is pretty much a "human highlight reel" when it comes to NFL Sundays. In addition, players have always loved his dynamic abilities in the game where they scored at least 450 million touchdowns with him last year. Mahar went on to say that his different qualifies truly represents the innovations to the game they're introducing with this upcoming title.
