NFL Tour cover athlete announced

Electronic Arts announced on October 11 that San Diego Chargers lineman Shawne Merriman was elected as the cover athlete for NFL Tour through an open online voting back in September. For the first time ever, EA Sports put the decision of who would grace the cover of the game in the hands of fans. After three weeks of voting, Merriman received the most votes out of fellow nominees Jason Taylor of the Miami Dolphins, and Dwight Freeney of the Indianapolis Colts. NFL Tour is formerly called NFL Street that started back in January 2004. The game is being developed by EA Tiburon.
