No, You Will Not Be Able to Play as Aaron Hernandez in ‘Madden’

Hernandez is in NCAA Football '14, though. Oops.

EA Sports had this to say about the issue.

“We made a decision to remove Aaron Hernandez from Madden NFL 25 and NCAA Football 14. Because NCAA Football 14 was finalized prior to our decision, Hernandez’ image still appears in the Nike Skills Trainer,” a spokesperson for EA Sports said [to CBS Sports]. “However, he is not in the game, and anyone who unlocks that particular Nike Skills Trainer reward will receive an Alex Smith Ultimate Team player item instead. The image of Hernandez will be removed via a Title Update in the near future.”


I play a lot of video games—but I have no idea what that means. Thanks, spokesperson.
