Tony Jefferson used ‘Madden’ to help choose Ravens
The Ravens have themselves and new safety and it appears a popular video game played a part in the team landing one of its newest players.
After spending the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Cardinals, Tony Jefferson recently signed a four-year deal with Baltimore worth over $30 million. He was reportedly being pursued by the Jets and Browns as well. However, among the factors that led Jefferson to choose the Ravens were the uniforms, which he says looked good on him.
“I am a guy of swagger, so I gotta check the swag at all points before I make a decision,” Jefferson told NFL.com. “I put myself in different uniforms on Madden to see what will look better. Ravens did look good, though.”
Look good, play good. Right?
The Ravens were in need of help in the secondary after releasing Kendrick Lewis. They now boast a quality pairing at safety with Jefferson and Eric Weddle, who started all 16 games last season and was named to the Pro Bowl.
Having cool uniforms comes in handy sometimes, and don’t underestimate how much stock players put into Madden.
