Lamar Jackson, the reigning NFL Most Valuable Player, made the surprise announcement Tuesday that he’ll be on the cover of Madden NFL 21.

The Baltimore Ravens star also said he isn’t worried about any curses associated with being on the cover.

“Patrick Mahomes is on the front and he won [Super Bowl] MVP,” Jackson said. “I want that curse. I hope that’s a curse.”

EA Sports has not officially stated whether Jackson will be on the cover but appeared to confirm his announcement on Twitter.

Madden tweeted out a video of Lamar Jackson sitting on the bench looking very bemused.

The text attached to the tweet shows they may not be too pleased with the Baltimore Ravens, who apparently leaked the news before it was supposed to be revealed.
