Kaepernick back … on “Madden NFL”


Failing to see quarterback Colin Kaepernick at work on a football field, his admirers can select him now in the most recent version of the famous video game “Madden NFL”.

Released last month on various consoles, including PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the game offers players the chance to use Kaepernick under a deal between the ex-San Francisco 49ers hub and EA Sports, revealed this business Tuesday. Symbol of the fight against social inequalities and police brutality in the United States, the 32-year-old athlete did not play in the Goodell circuit after the 2016 season.

“Colin Kaepernick is one of football’s foremost free agents and a strong starting quarterback,” EA Sports said on its website. Our team, like the millions of Madden NFL followers, want to see him return to our sport. We also have a long relationship with Colin through the game and we have worked despite our mistakes in the past. ”

These soundtrack errors mentioned by the company refer to the decision to use for the 2018 and 2019 games songs that initially contain Kaepernick’s name and to delete it.

An overall rating of 81

Meanwhile, quarterback fans will be happy to know that EA Sports rated him 81 despite his prolonged absence from competition.

“Based on Kaepernick’s performance on the playing surface, combined with our simulation-related information, we gave him an overall value of 81. This takes into account the fact that he has not played since 2016, a justified the business. When he was a healthy starting quarterback, he was rated at 89, 89 and 91. He was known for his strong touchdown-to-steal ratio, mobility and playoff performance. ”
