Madden NFL 12: Players Rated 99 Overall

Posted July 18th, 2011 at 12:15 pm

EA Sports is beginning to release some player ratings for Madden NFL 12 and is expected to stretch the process out over the next month. That has started by identifying the 99 overall rated players. Patriots QB Tom Brady, Chargers TE Antonio Gates, Steelers SS Troy Polamalu, and Jets CB Darrelle Revis are the four that will begin the 2011-2012 season with the coveted 99.

Missing from the group is Peyton Manning who finally lost his 99 rating in a roster update last season and doesn’t get it back for Madden 12. Nnamdi Asomugha and James Harrison had 99’s up until the post-Super Bowl update and fall short here too. Aaron Rodgers ended Madden 11 with a 99 rating but did not retain the honor going into Madden 12. He’ll probably be short of the pinnacle by just a point or two.
