Who would you like to see on the cover of Madden NFL 16?

Here's how to vote.
HOW TO VOTE WITH MADDEN NFL MOBILE
Players will receive a Vote Collectible the first time they log in to Madden NFL Mobile each day.
Cover Vote Collectibles complete one of four repeatable Cover Vote Sets, so that players can vote over and over again for the Madden NFL 16 cover athlete.
These Collectibles cannot be auctioned.
Players can also cast votes by completing four daily Live Events (one Live Event every six hours). For every successful Live Event completion, players will be awarded one Vote Collectible to be added to the finalist set in which the player wants to vote for and a chance of winning one Cover Athlete Finalist Collectible. Add this collectible to a set to unlock an 88 OVR version of the Cover Athlete Finalist.
The winning Cover Athlete will be boosted to a 99 OVR at the time of the cover reveal. Ten Cover Athlete Finalist Collectibles are required for each set, and the can be auctioned.
Live Events are unlimited play, meaning unlimited voting, as long as players have stamina.
HOW TO VOTE WITH MADDEN ULTIMATE TEAM
Console players will receive one Cover Vote Collectible the first time they log in to Madden Ultimate Team (MUT) during the week. This and other Cover Vote Collectibles can be used to complete Cover Vote Sets. There is one Set for each of the four semifinalists.
