The votes are in and a hefty new contract isn’t the only thing Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson earned this offseason.

After five weeks of voting in a March Madness-style tournament, the 26-year-old wideout defeated Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in the finals for the cover of EA Sports’ Madden 13 video game.

Over 20 million votes were cast in the final round that saw both players present in New York City and on the set of ESPN’s SportsNation, where the official announcement was made.

Thanks for the voting!
