July 17, 2020 7:24 pm

It’s no secret that NFL players take their EA Sports Madden ratings extremely seriously. Year after year, league members anxiously await their overall ratings for the latest edition of the popular game. Madden NFL 21 is set to release later this year and the top-rated players for the new edition have been revealed.

As far as the players are concerned, the 99 Club is considered to be rather exclusive. Any player who makes the 99 Club is instantly given major respect from colleagues in the league.

Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes was the first player to make this year’s 99 Club. The Super Bowl LIV winner was joined by Carolina Panthers’ running back Christian McCaffrey, Los Angeles Rams’ defensive tackle Aaron Donald and New England Patriots’ cornerback Stephon Gilmore.

However, there is a fresh face who made the highly sought after 99 Club this year, New Orleans Saints’ wide receiver Michael Thomas.
