A tweet from Madden NFL creative director Michael Young to Adam Schefter has made it evident that the ESPN reporter has an as-yet-to-be-explained role in Madden NFL 25. Though he was a part of the in-game Twitter feed heading in to do work for the game suggests he’ll factor in more significantly than that.

The hinting at involvement of a media personality comes exactly one year to the day after the same was done on Twitter with Trey Wingo. That occurred just weeks before the reveal of Connected Careers and his place providing commentary on players during the NFL Draft. The first news on the renamed Connected Franchise is slated for May 20. Schefter has a history working with EA on what could end up being a similar project as he was involved with NFL Head Coach 09 providing insight on prospects during the season and reaction to picks during the draft.
