EA Sports has officially revealed the cover star for its Madden NFL 19 Hall of Fame Edition, 2018 Hall of Fame inductee and former wide receiver Terrell Owens. Owens was a six-time Pro Bowler who played for the Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles, though the cover features him donning a blue, silver and white uniform of the Cowboys.
The announcement came in a mock, press-like conference posted to Terrell Owens’s Instagram page. In the short clip, Owens states he will be returning to the NFL, however in virtual reality form as opposed to hitting the actual field.
