For the past few weeks, fans have been voting on who they wanted to see on the cover of the upcoming Madden 15 release. After starting out with eight players, the field was eventually narrowed to a final between Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman and Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton.
It was announced on ESPN today that Sherman was voted the winner by fans and will grace the cover of the popular gaming franchises next release.
And the Madden Cover — blessing or curse — goes to…Seahawks CB Richard Sherman. #MaddenCover

While Panther fans everywhere breathe a sigh of relief, fans of the defending Super Bowl champ Seahawks will hope that the Madden Curse doesn’t strike their All-Pro this season.
