Here’s what Ravens QB Lamar Jackson looks like on the cover of 'Madden NFL 21′

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had an unprecedented 2019 season. Now he has a “Madden” cover that stands alone, too.

The “Madden NFL 21” cover art starring the NFL’s reigning Most Valuable Player was released Tuesday, and on two of the covers, a collage of images fills the space. “Madden” cover athletes have historically had just a single portrait photo on the cover of the popular video game.

The standard-edition cover features six photos of Jackson, highlighted by one of him dropping back to pass. The “deluxe” edition has a nod to his wild-dog jewelry and an in-game hurdle. The “MVP” edition has only a black-and-white photo of Jackson, along with his now-famous quote, “Not bad for a running back.”

“It’s always been a dream of mine since I was a little kid, since I first started playing ‘Madden,’ ” Jackson said in April of being named the cover athlete. "It’s dope. I have every ‘Madden,’ so for me to be on the front cover, that’s a dream come true. That’s an accomplishment for the kids around here where I’m from, stuff like that. So it’s pretty cool. It’s pretty dope.”

Linebacker Ray Lewis was previously the only Ravens player to be featured on the cover, in “Madden NFL 2005." The game will be released for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms Aug. 25.
