Calvin Johnson is the Madden NFL 13 cover athlete

Once again, the cover of a Madden NFL game is misleading, prominently featuring a person who is not John Madden. Instead, we get Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions wide receiver. Johnson was just revealed on ESPN2 as the winner of a fan vote, which pitted him against Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in the final round.

Whether this is good news to you depends on whether you support the Lions, and whether you believe in the "Madden Curse."
