Drew Brees To Be Announced as Madden 11 Cover Athlete

Posted April 21st, 2010 at 7:20 am

EA Sports will be making the official announcement tomorrow that Drew Brees has won the vote to be on the cover of Madden 11. This has essentially been the forgone conclusion ever since the promotion began which put Brees up against Reggie Wayne and Jared Allen. Those two never stood a chance with Wayne being too under the radar, Allen being generally disliked and carrying a record that includes three DUIs, and Brees coming off a Super Bowl victory and at the height of popularity.

On Friday Brees will be on Live with Regis and Kelly to promote the announcement. Typically this appearance corresponding with the cover reveal has been done on a late night talk show. Last year it was Jimmy Fallon, the year before David Letterman, and the year prior Jimmy Kimmel. Being in New York for Draft festivities limited the options to shows based in the city. Fallon is on break this week and Brees sat down with Letterman back in February so both those options were eliminated. (Update) Brees will appear on Letterman to do the Top 10 list tomorrow night.
