EA Sports announced that former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick will return to the EA Madden series as a top free agent in Madden 21. This is Kaepernick's first appearance in an EA Madden game since 2016.
EA Sports said: Colin Kaepernick is one of the top free agents in football and an excellent quarterback. The EA Sports team and millions of Madden NFL fans want to see him return to our game.
Kaepernick, a former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, knelt down in the 2016 "The Star-Spangled Banner", silently protesting against police brutality and racism. At the time, Kaepernick's decision to kneel was strongly opposed by the media, although this practice has become more and more common in various sports.
After the 2016 NFL season, he became a free agent, and this was the last time he appeared in a Madden game.
At the time EA Sports stated that after Kaepernick became a free agent, he was not included in the group licensing agreement EA negotiates with the NFL Players Association. This means that EA Sports cannot obtain the rights to Kaepernick's likeness and the appearance of the subsequent Madden games.
Kaepernick's name was also censored in two songs featured in Madden 18 and 19, and EA has always considered this to be a mistake.
Therefore, EA Sports negotiated directly with Kaepernick for his Madden comeback, and that the quarterback was "hands-on" in how his avatar would appear in Madden 21.
So, are you looking forward to Kaepernick's return? Anyway, I am looking forward to it~ If you are looking forward to it, please continue to pay attention to GAMEMS.
If you are not looking forward to it (I know Madden 21 sucks), please also pay attention.
