For football fans that like to put the game into their hands, EA Sports’ Madden franchise is the game for you. Whether you want to call the plays and be the quarterback, handle the behind-the-scenes duties as a general manager, or whether you want to play one of the other game modes inside, you’ve probably played Madden in one way or another. If you’re a Chicago Bears fan, you’ve probably put the game on Rookie and done your worst to the Green Bay Packers.

When Madden was in its teen stage, the big deal was being the Madden cover athlete. However, since a string of unfortunate events happened revolving around those cover athletes, the Madden Curse’  has made players less excited to be tied to the video-game franchise.

However, EA found a way to gain excitement from the players they emulate year after year. One of the major announcement events that have come out of the Madden franchise is the growingly popular “99 Club”.

With Madden beginning this “99 Club” announcement in Madden 19, the list was comprised of:

  • Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots
  • Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Aaron Donald, DT, Los Angeles Rams
  • Rob Gronkowski, TE, New England Patriots
  • Luke Kuechly, LB, Carolina Panthers
  • Von Miller, LB, Denver Broncos
  • Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers

Each of these seven players got gold 99 cleats, gold 99 gloves, and a 99 Club plaque.

So, while the Chicago Bears have only had two players with a 99 OVR in Madden’s history, who will be the next Chicago Bear to join the glamorous EA Sports Madden 99 Club?
