Madden NFL 13 Cover Candidates: AFC South

Posted March 4th, 2012 at 8:45 am

EA Sports continues their reveal of candidates for the upcoming 64 player tournament to capture the cover of Madden NFL 13. One division per day will be announced leading up to the start of voting in the round of dual team representatives on March 7th.

The Texans present the strongest duo from the AFC South – though Arian Foster has to be considered the favorite. In what may be the worst player ever included in cover discussion the Jaguars get saddled with Blaine Gabbert as one rep. Though he’ll surely go down to MJD that spot should have been given to someone more worthy of the recognition. Jake Locker was understandably in the mix given the Titans’ lack of options but it’s difficult to justify including someone in this field who barely played while Robert Mathis for the Colts is a free agent.

Houston Texans: Arian Foster and Andre Johnson
Indianapolis Colts: Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis
Jacksonville Jaguars: Maurice Jones-Drew and Blaine Gabbert
Tennessee Titans: Chris Johnson and Jake Locker
