I'm truly excited, truly honored, truly thrilled to be on the cover this year. So many people to thank. I just want to thank everybody who voted, everybody who was in it – Antonio, Pat, Gronk, EA, everybody who went along with this. I’m kind of at a loss for words, it’s a dream come true. It’s just such an honor to be part of this Madden cover. To play professional football for a year and then make it all the way to the cover, along with all the other greats who've been on it, it's truly a blessing.
I just want to go out there and do the best that I can. I truly believe in God and a curse is something people wish upon someone, so anybody who wishes something upon me or anything like that is where the curse comes into play. I don’t believe that there is such thing as a Madden curse. She talked about how Larry came off and had one of his best seasons and Calvin came in and broke Jerry Rice’s single season receiving record, so there’s a lot of good from this.
I’m just so thankful. Very, very thankful for all the fans who voted for me. It truly means a lot to me. I wish I knew a better way to express it but I just want to thank everybody – my agent, Mom, Dad I appreciate all the love and support you guys have for me.
