Madden 19 Ultimate Legends Include Calvin Johnson Among New MUT Cards, Double XP Promotion In Effect

Madden Ultimate Team continues to bring gamers the goodness of fresh new player cards for rosters. The latest promotion features the Madden 19 Ultimate Legends which brings a few gridiron greats into the mix for MUT players. In addition, they’re running a special promotion over the weekend to really boost those experience points for your MUT lineup.

Madden 19 Ultimate Legends: Johnson, Taylor lead the way

Over the past week, gamers learned of the new Madden NFL Honors cards. These players will possibly be amongst future legends that everyone talks about. The Detroit Lions’ Calvin Johnson is certainly a legend of the game after his Pro Bowl career. Johnson played in Detroit for eight seasons, tallying 11,619 receiving yards and 83 touchdowns over his time there. He now joins the video game as one of the Madden 19 Ultimate Legends that dropped this weekend.

EA’s Madden Ultimate Team posted several bits of content including a quick video to let fans know the legends are live. In addition, Johnson’s player card is below as seen in a recent tweet. The EA Madden Ultimate Team crew is allowing fans a chance to win one by liking and retweeting their post.

Johnson brings a 98 overall and includes high skill ratings such as 98 Jumping, 98 Spectacular Catching, and 97 Deep Route running, among others. He’ll make a great addition to rosters in need of that big playmaker down the field as fans familiar with his work know how his catches have been highlight-worthy. Imagine pairing him up with NFL Honors OPOTY Patrick Mahomes, or Super Bowl winner Tom Brady on a team?
