Leading the New Orleans Saints to the franchise first Super Bowl championship has brought quarterback Drew Brees more than a Super Bowl ring and Super Bowl MVP title. Recently a new prize was given to the quarterback in No. 9 Saints jersey-being the cover model for this year’s “Madden NFL”.
According to the announcement made by the EA Sports on Thursday, Brees will appear as featured image on the front of “Madden NFL 11,” the latest installment of the best-selling football franchise. Expressing his gladness for being selected, Brees said that landing the cover of “Madden” was “a great way to cap off an amazing year.” Indeed, a Super Bowl win is enough for him to be honored in that way and there are still other reasons for him to make appearance of the cover of “Madden”.
Since joining the Saints in 2006 after being released by the former team San Diego Chargers, Brees has devoted a lot of his life to the city. He is not only the starting quarterback of the city’s football team but also the spokesman for the city’s reconstruction after the Hurricane Katrina. Without telling what he wants to be like on the cover, the quarterback hopes that people could pay more attention to what happened to New Orleans upon seeing the Saints’ fleur-de-lis logo on the cover.
