Cover of Madden NFL 12: It's A Done Deal 12

It's official: Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis will appear on the box cover of this year's Madden (due in stores on August 30th). He's only the fourth running back to appear on the cover in Madden history. And he got there because you put him there.
