With a 96 overall rating, the Dallas Cowboys’ Dez Bryant is the second-highest ranked wide receiver in Madden NFL 16, the latest edition of the iconic game, which will be released on August 25. But he’s not totally thrilled about the latest video game version of himself.
Only Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers is ranked as better than Bryant in the game, with a 97 overall rating. Bryant did beat out the Lions’ Calvin Johnson (3, 95 overall rating), the Giants’ Odell Beckham, Jr. (4, 94 overall rating) and the Falcons’ Julio Jones (5, 94 overall rating).
EASports.com says of Bryant: “Fight for the ball with Bryant’s three 98s for Catching, Jumping, and Spectacular Catch. He’ll get there with 89 SPD/90 ACC/92 ELUS and breaking loose is easy with 91 SPM/95 JKM.”
Which left Bryant with one question, which he took to Twitter to ask, via the Dallas Morning News: “89 speed? Y’all [expletive] crazy.”
