(NFL) After winning his first Super Bowl and earning his first Pro Bowl selection, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman also wins the Madden cover.
R. Sherman advanced through a bracket voted on by us fans, beating Alshon Jeffery, Jimmy Graham and Colin Kaepernick in the final. More than 600,000 votes were cast for the tournament final, and Sherman beat out Panthers quarterback Cam Newton with 56 percent of the vote to land on the cover.
Sherman will be the second Seahawk to grace the cover of Madden — Shaun Alexander was on the cover of Madden NFL 07.
After losing, Newton posted this message for Sherman on his Instagram account.
“OOOOUCH! I never will accept LOS1NG but I must say the MADDENcover was a fun event! Thanks to EVERY1 who voted for ya boy”
