Madden NFL 13 Cover Candidates: NFC South

Posted March 5th, 2012 at 9:00 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 battle to move on out as the Saints rep is the interesting one in the NFC South though it’ll be tough for Jimmy Graham to topple Drew Brees. Cam Newton could be one of the favorites in the tournament and the Bucs had little to offer coming off a season where they severely regressed. The surprising omissions are Tony Gonzalez (who seemed like a perfect fit for the campaign) and Michael Turner.

Atlanta Falcons: Matt Ryan and Julio Jones
Carolina Panthers: Cam Newton and Steve Smith
New Orleans Saints: Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Josh Freeman and LeGarrette Blount
