Madden '21 makes Eddie George the captain of the "ultimate team

  • The virtual world of football has as much respect for Eddie George as it does for the real world.

    In the Twitch live broadcast on Tuesday, EASports revealed the captain of Madden NFL 2021's popular Madden Ultimate Team (MUT) mode. George was the first-round pick for the Houston Oilers in the 1996 NFL Draft. He is one of four users who can choose to lead Madden 21 Coins in the latest version of the popular video game. The other stars are La Roy Glover (Dallas Cowboys), Ed McFee (Denver Broncos) and Arenas Williams (Arizona Cardinals).

    Similar to fantasy football, competitors use the MUT model to customize their teams for existing and former NFL players from scratch. Throughout the entire 16 seasons, they can frequently adjust their lineup to best compete with others.

    In the 1996 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year Award, George ranked 87 overall in this year's game. As part of the MUT model, this number may change throughout the user season.

    George is a four-time professional bowler and retired after the 2004 season. George (George George) played in the Otaners/Titans in 8 of his 9 NFL seasons and is still the leading sprinter in team history. Seven of George's eight seasons with the Oilers/Titans rushed for 1,000 yards or more. In addition, he rushed for 100 yards or more in 36 of the 128 games in this franchise.

    In the last five seasons of Tennessee, George helped the Titans enter the playoffs four times. That period also included the appearance of the Super Bowl (loss to the St. Louis Rams in 1999).

    The popular video game series released its complete player and team rankings in July. "Madden NFL 21" will be available across the country on August 25. By then, the specific role of Buy Madden 21 Coins will be clear.
