UPDATE: Calvin Johnson has won and will be on the cover of Madden 13. Check out Johnson with the cover here.
A reminder: Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson will find out if he is on the cover of Madden 13 today. The big reveal of the winner of the Madden 13 cover vote will take place on SportsNation today at 5 p.m. The show will air on ESPN2.
Last we heard, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had a "small but vulnerable lead" over Johnson in the cover vote. Of course, that update was from Monday morning, so a lot could have changed in the last two days.
It will be interesting to see who ends up winning the vote and gets to grace the cover of this year's Madden. On one side you have Newton, who has only been in the league for one season and played on a team that went 6-10. On the other side, you have Johnson, who really elevated himself to superstar status last season and played for a Lions team that made the playoffs with a 10-6 record.
I really wouldn't be surprised either way, but I do hope Johnson wins, not only because he wants to be on the cover, but again, I don't want to see Megatron lose in anything to this guy.
