|2011 Madden NFL Video Game Cover to Feature Saints QB Brees
|UNDATED (AP) -- Drew Brees has another prize to put next to his Super Bowl MVP trophy: He's the cover model for this year's edition of the ``Madden NFL'' video game.
The New Orleans Saints quarterback led his team to a 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in this year's Super Bowl. He says landing the cover of "Madden" is "a great way to cap off an amazing year."
The announcement was made Thursday.
Brees was chosen by fans who voted online to determine the game's cover athlete. The other choices were Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne and Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen.
"Madden NFL 11" will be released by EA Sports on August 10.
