Put Hakeem Nicks on the Madden cover

Hakeem Nicks has a chance to grace the cover of the next Madden video game.

This year, the fans will determine who will be on the cover of the “Madden NFL 12” by voting here.

There are 31 NFL players and the Seahawks’ 12th man competing for the Madden cover. Each contestant is seeded and pitted against one another bracket-style like the NCAA tournament.

The lone Giants representative is Nicks, who is seeded fifth and faces the Redskins’ Brian Orakpo.

The winner moves on to face either New England’s Danny Woodhead or Buffalo’s Steve Johnson. There are some other interesting first-round matchups.

Of course, if you are a Giants fan and you believe in the Madden curse, then you might not want to vote for Nicks.

The voting dates are as follows:

•Opening Round: March 21-27

•Second Round: March 28-April 3

•Third Round: April 4-10

•Semifinals: April 11-17

•Finals: April 18-26
