Madden 21 Ultimate Team: MUT Captains and Master Player Revealed

A Twitch live stream on Tuesday night gave more details about the upcoming Madden 21 Ultimate Team. It’s one of the more popular modes in the game, despite the fact it can involve a lot of micro-transactions. During the new presentation, EA Madden’s Agent K and Jake Stein talked about what’s on the way for the game mode. In particular, we got our first look at the four MUT Captains and this year’s Master player.

Madden 21 Ultimate Team captains include Eddie George, Ed McCaffrey

In Madden 20, MUT gamers chose one of four team captains as part of their squad for the season. Those choices included MLB Ryan Shazier, TE Dallas Clark, WR Herman Moore, and CB Ty Law. Basically, gamers had their player on their Ultimate Team roster and then could get upgrades throughout the course of MUT season. There was also an option to switch out team captains as needed.

That option will return for Madden 21 Ultimate Team, as they mentioned there will be an exchange set. It will be available multiple times through the MUT 21 season.

As far as the choices for Madden 21 MUT captain, they have four new options. They’ll include halfback Eddie George, defensive tackle La’Roi Glover, wide receiver Ed McCaffrey, and cornerback Aeneas Williams.

During EA Madden’s Twitch stream, they also showed off how the new MUT captains will start out as far as attributes in the game.

New MUT Masters player is Sam Mills

In Madden 20, there was also a Masters player that gamers could earn for their MUT roster. That player was upgradeable throughout the season through the completion of different missions. In MUT 20, it was former NFL player Pat Tillman who left his football career to serve in the United States Army and was killed during friendly fire in Afghanistan.

For Madden 21, the MUT Masters player will be former Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints middle linebacker Sam Mills. After playing eight years with the Saints, he became part of the expansion franchise in Carolina, playing in every game for the team’s first three seasons.

In 1998, Mills went on to join the Panthers’ coaching staff. He was diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2003 and told he had just a few months left to live. However, he underwent chemotherapy and radiation and continued his coaching career. Mills ultimately passed in April 2005 at the age of 45. In his honor, the Panthers retired his jersey at the start of the 2005 season.

He’ll become the latest Madden Master in the upcoming game, with players able to earn him through a quick Ultimate Team mission. Just like the MUT captains, he’ll become upgradeable over the course of the Ultimate Team season.
