Lacy could be on next 'Madden' cover
By Rob Demovsky
GREEN BAY, Wis. – Eddie Lacy is many things -- the Green Bay Packers' standout running back, the reigning NFL offensive rookie of the year and one of the most popular young players in the league.
Could he be the next face of the EA Sports Madden video game?
The 2013 second-round draft pick who last season set a Packers rookie rushing record with 1,178 yards is one of 16 players vying for the honor to be on the cover of the upcoming Madden '15 game.
The winner will be determined by fan voting based on head-to-head matchups. Lacy must outgain New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham in order to move on to the next round. First-round voting, which can be done by clicking this link, ends Thursday.
Perhaps if Lacy moves on, he will take his Madden cover campaign to video in the form of these highly entertaining spots with other finalists Andrew Luck and Alfred Morris. Check out Luck's video here and Morris' video here.
