Yes, we're double-dipping Derrick Henry and that's because I've come up with a hypothesis. Maybe he is one of the two goats featured in EA Sports' teaser with former Titans running back Eddie George -- the first player to be included on the Madden nfl 22 coins cover -- as the other. This scenario makes the teaser logical and would also provide a nice nod to the history of the game. Also, I think that the inclusion of Peyton Hillis (the last active NFL running back) on the cover might be an Easter gift.
It's admittedly off from our top two choices but it's logical when you consider it. The past has seen EA Sports has given the Madden NFL cover to a non-active player (Barry Sanders in 2013 for Madden NFL 25), to ensure that they don't break the rules completely in creating Peyton and Eli Manning the co-cover athletes. Despite being among the greatest quarterbacks of the modern era, Peyton has never been on the cover of Madden NFL. If they ever wanted to right that wrong in the year Peyton is scheduled to enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame is a good occasion to do so. Eli's addition would be a nice gesture to the ex-New York Giants legend. It could also tie in the elder teaser as well as the teaser for babies very nicely.
