Tom Brady has been selected to be on the cover of "Madden NFL 18," becoming the oldest player to appear on the cover of the popular EA Sports game.
Brady, who will turn 40 in August, grew up a few miles away from where Electronic Arts opened in his hometown of San Mateo, California.
"When this all came about," Brady told ESPN, "I thought, 'How cool is that to do this, knowing when I was a kid in high school I was tagging along down there, working out where it all started?' It's been such a great game over a long period of time. I played it so much when I was younger, a little less now. ... My son Jack loves beating up on me."
Last year's game featured Brady's New England Patriots' teammate Rob Gronkowski on the cover.
