Tom Brady To Be On Cover Of 'Madden NFL 18'

Tom Brady is the Madden NFL 18 Cover Athlete

Earlier today EA Sports revealed the cover athlete for Madden NFL 18 is going to be New Englands Tom Brady.

The Madden curse, believe it or not, is a big suspicion, one Tom Brady hopes to shove away. Nope. Last season, Madden NFL 17 cover star Gronkowski was placed on injured reserve after undergoing back surgery.

Only time will tell if the Madden curse will live on through Brady this upcoming season, but clearly No. 12 is not concerned about any curses.

"I think that is one of the negotiations we always go through before we start a game", Brady said, clearly enjoying the question. It doesn't stand a chance!'

New Chinese missile can attack aircraft carriers, THAAD
Meant to shoot down incoming North Korean missiles, Beijing has called the system a threat to its own national security. There is a strict Chinese boycott of South Korea that has been in effect since the THAAD defenses were installed.

Brady also posted this Facebook video to announce the move. Every dollar buys four meals for the hungry.

None of that matters to Brady, who seems to believe he's curse-proof. EA Sports considers him to be the G.O.A.T., as they have chosen him to become the Madden 18 cover athlete.

Brady told ESPN he doesn't play as much "Madden" as he didn't when he was younger, but added that "my son Jack loves beating up on me".

By pre-ordering the standard edition of Madden NFL 18, you'll receive the choice of an Elite player from your favorite NFL team for use in Ultimate Team, as well as five Squad Packs (redeemable at launch).

Iraq, Algeria support extension of oil production cuts
Saudi Arabia told Asian refiners of its first cuts in crude allocations since OPEC's output reduction took effect in January. Crude inventories fell 5.2 million barrels in the week to May 5, the US Energy Information Administration said .

Additionally, EA announced Madden NFL 18 would launch on August 25 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

"The "Madden NFL 18" cover is a great honor for me", Brady said in a statement. When Madden NFL '18 releases August 25, he said it's likely to be a popular topic for conversation in the Patriots lockerroom. It will feature new visuals and physics courtesy of the Frostbite engine.

On top of it all, there will be a Franchise mode where players have full control via the Madden Companion smart phone app. Play weekly games and decided whether to play as just offense, defense, or from key moments.

SE Cupp: Kellyanne Conway is wrong about Anderson Cooper's eyeroll
Honestly, anyone who can interview Conway for 10 minutes before rolling their eyes is a hero in my book. Conway, as she's wont to do, deflected by thanking Cooper for the "trip down memory lane".
