Dez Bryant Is NOT Happy About His New ‘Madden 17’ Rating, Calling It An ‘Insult’ And More

We’ve already seen how some of the top NFL rookies reacted to seeing their Madden 17 rating for the first time and they weren’t too thrilled.

Someone else who wasn’t too thrilled when he discovered what his new Madden 17 rating is to start the season is Cowboys’ wideout Dez Bryant.

Speaking to the Dallas Morning News, Bryant had this to say…

“It is what it is,” Bryant said after Friday night’s preseason game against the Miami Dolphins. “We’re just going to see what happens. Like I told Madden, they put me at 90, I’m not worried about that. That rating going to shoot up real quick, you best believe that.”

In a joking tone, Bryant continued on about the disrespectful rating.

“I play Madden, I [expletive] love Madden,” Bryant said. “They would do me like that? Oh my God. That is an insult, like why would you do that to me? How much I love y’all. Like what? Not John Madden, because I love him. It’s the developers.”

Last year Bryant was rated 96, but now EA sports has deemed him the 7th best wide receiver behind Antonio Brown (97), Julio Jones (96), A.J. Green (93), Odell Beckham Jr. (93), DeAndre Hopkins (93), Larry Fitzgerald (91) and Alshon Jeffery (91).

Based on this, however, his rating does seem about right…

So what do you think? Should Dez have a better rating?
