VIDEO: Behind The Scenes With Calvin Johnson After Winning Madden Cover Vote

When Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was revealed as the winner of the Madden 13 cover vote last month, he didn't have much time to celebrate. In fact, he was quickly put to work by EA Sports. Immediately after winning the cover vote, Johnson changed into his Lions uniform and took part in a photo shoot in Times Square in order to get pictures ready for the final version of the cover, which was revealed last week.

The photo shoot was only the beginning of a busy few days for Johnson. In the following days, he made several media appearances to help promote Madden, which is a big part of being on the cover. As you all know, he stopped by the NFL Draft, as well as David Letterman's show. He also took part in an autograph signing and a Q&A. All of this was captured in a behind-the-scenes video produced by EA Sports to show what exactly Megatron was up to after being named the cover athlete for Madden 13. Check it out:
