Madden 25 has a new cover athlete – but he hasn’t put on pads and a helmet in a decade.

Detroit Lions legend Barry Sanders earned more votes than reigning NFL MVP Adrian Peterson, and will grace the cover of the 25th anniversary edition of the popular video game series. Sanders was one of the top runners of the 1990s, before retiring from the game in 1998.

Sanders beat out Peterson, who came within a few yards of breaking the single-season record for rushing yards last season, as well as Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, and Ray Lewis.
