Posted April 25th, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has won the fan-voted cover athlete tournament for Madden NFL 13. He beat out Cam Newton for the honor despite a strong “CAMpaign” on his part. It was a worthy final duo with both representing great on-field performance as well as having exceedingly marketable personalities.

Megatron rolled over the competition throughout the tournament disposing of Matt Stafford, Dwayne Bowe, Arian Foster, Rob Gronkowsi, and Aaron Rodgers. He becomes the first ever wide receiver to appear solo on the cover of the Madden franchise.
