EA Announces Online Co-Op For Madden 10

It’s good to see EA finally getting around to innovating in ways that actually have me seriously looking forward to a new Madden for a change. While we will obviously be hearing all about Madden NFL 10’s new features at E3 next week, EA has gone ahead and revealed that this year’s game will feature online co-op. In addition, it looks as though…wait, what?! That’s awesome! EA press release, tell me more please.

“Team up with a friend online to work on game strategy, practice plays, and see the field from a unique point-of-view, thanks to position-specific camera angles. Change player positions after each play to experience the NFL from a completely different dynamic. Want to find out what it’s like to play as a wide receiver on one play, and the left offensive tackle on another? With Madden NFL 10 Online Co-op, the choice is yours.”

Boldin, who’s in a long contract dispute with the Cardinals, informed the NFL Players Association in a letter that he intended to replace Rosenhaus as his agent.

Yards: 1,038
Touchdowns: 11

Rosenhaus issued a statement saying he has “great respect” for Boldin.

“I’m hopeful we can work things out and he will return to the Rosenhaus Sports family in the near future,” Rosenhaus said.

Boldin, who has two years left on his contract with the Cardinals, is upset with the team’s management over what he says was a failed promise for a new deal last offseason. He has asked for a trade. The Cardinals said they would listen to offers, but on draft day, they claimed no team had proposed a deal that could be seriously considered.
