Jimmy Graham could be on the next cover of Madden NFL video game

The next Madden NFL video game could feature a familiar face for Saints fans -- Jimmy Graham.

The Madden NFL cover vote is underway. Sixteen players are up for the chance to be on the cover of the next installment of the video game franchise.
In the second round of voting for the cover, Graham is up against Cam Newton, Luke Kuechly, Colin Kaepernick, LeSean McCoy, Andrew Luck, Jamaal Charles and Richard Sherman.

Graham wouldn't be the first Saints player to be featured on the cover if he is selected. Drew Brees was featured on the cover of Madden NFL 11, following the Saints Super Bowl XLIV win.

It's not all happy thoughts for players to be on the cover. Certain players who appeared on video game box art have experienced a decline in performance, including Michael Vick after appearing on the 2003 cover, Ray Lewis appeared on the 2005 cover and Donovan McNabb, to name a few.

While it would be a fun sight to see a beloved Saints player on the cover, here's hoping EA Sports, the publisher of the game, will include some slam dunk celebrations for touch downs by Graham. Bent goal posts could be bonus points.
