Lamar Jackson to be on the Cover of Madden NFL 21.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson revealed he'll receive another honor after his NFL Most Valuable Player season -- he'll grace the cover of "Madden NFL 21."

On a video conference call Tuesday with Baltimore reporters, Jackson said he has spoken to EA Sports and made the surprise announcement that he'll be the new face of the video game."It's always been a dream of mine since I was a little kid, since I first started playing Madden," Jackson said. "It's dope. I have every Madden. To me to be on the front of it, it's a dream come true."

Jackson also said he isn't worried about any curses associated with being on the cover of Madden.

"Patrick Mahomes is on the front and he won [Super Bowl] MVP," Jackson said. "I want that curse. I hope that's a curse."

The latest version of Madden 21 is coming to Xbox Series X. Here's a first look at the gameplay.

You're basing your opinion of modern Madden games off your impressions of the first one on Genesis?

Re: Lamar Jackson to be on the Cover of Madden NFL 21.

EA maintains exclusive Madden NFL license in multiyear renewal.

Financial terms of the renewal were not disclosed. Asked for information about the extension’s length, an NFL representative confirmed to Polygon that the new contract runs for six years “starting today,” taking the agreement through May 2026. The rep also said the contract includes a provision for a one-year extension at the end. That additional year depends on EA hitting certain revenue targets.
