EA Sports has begun the process of releasing its weekly information in the form of playbooks for the upcoming release of Madden 25, which is slated for its usual Summer launch.  Sportsnation on ESPN2 will have an exclusive trailer at 8PM Eastern Standard Time to get a jump start on the playbooks, which are listed in the schedule below.  Madden 25, of course, is in the middle of the final cover vote between Barry Sanders and Adrian Peterson to determine the best of the best for the cover vote.  Of course, Madden players will wonder what happens to the dreaded "Madden Curse" if it goes to a player that isn't even active in the league, but that's another article for another time.
