NFL Rookie Sees Madden Rating, ‘Quits’: ‘I’m Sending This To My Momma’ (Video)

It takes a bit of confidence to be an everyday athlete in the National Football League. Needless to say, the NFL rookie Class of 2015 has plenty of it.

EA Sports, creators of the “Madden NFL Football” video game franchise, sat down with Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota, Amari Cooper and several other notable rookies from this year’s draft to have them predict their ratings.

The large majority of players predicted they’d land in the mid-80s, and one bold player even suggested he was worthy of a low-90s rating. When EA representatives revealed their actual ratings, the results were predictably hilarious.

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver Sammie Coates took the cake for best reaction, though. After staring at the paper in disbelief, the No. 87 overall pick in this year’s draft slammed the paper down before claiming he was “sending this to my Momma. I quit.”

Check out the rest of the comical reactions in the video above.
