Tom Brady is to a have a rating of 99


Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is one of just four players to be tabbed with a 99 rating in the Madden 12 video game, set for release on Aug. 30. He’s joined by Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu and Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis.

This is the first time in several editions that Peyton Manning doesn’t begin with a 99 rating, which he lost last year during a roster update, during which players may have their scores adjusted in-season.
