The roster update for Madden NFL 12 that follows the divisional round of the playoffs is set to arrive on Friday for both the Xbox 360 and PS3. The update of course focuses on the teams that competed last weekend but also sprinkles in changes for some others.
49ers defensive lineman Justin Smith joins the exclusive club of 99 rated players for the first time and Vernon Davis jumps up to 96. Rob Gronkowski moves closer to the pinnacle as he gains 2 points to 98 overall while Ed Reed and Ray Lewis both gain a point to get to 98. Team wise in net gain vs loss it is the 49ers who get one of the biggest boosts of the year (+14) and are followed by the Patriots (+10) and Giants (+7) while the Broncos (-8) and the Packers and Saints (-6) slide after their upset losses.
