Barry Sanders could be on a Madden cover again

Former Detroit Lions superstar Barry Sanders is in the running to be on the cover of Madden 25 when it releases later this year. He is part of the old-school vs. new-school cover contest EA Sports is currently hosting. Sanders advanced through the first round with ease, however Matthew Stafford, who represented the Lions in the new-school bracket, lost in the first round to Doug Martin of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Sanders is up against former running back Marcus Allen, representing the Kansas City Chiefs. If Sanders gets the most votes, he would face either Ray Lewis or LaDainian Tomlinson in the next round.

If Sanders wins it would be the second time being on a Madden cover. He was featured in the background of Madden 2000. The infamous Madden Curse struck when Sanders decided to retire before training camp. So maybe if Sanders wins this year, he'll come back right?

Round two voting ends March 27. The finals are April 17-24.
