Detroit Lions Madden 12 Player Ratings Revealed

ESPN has been given exclusive access to Madden 12 player ratings and they have slowly released them team-by-team. Today is finally the day they got to the Detroit Lions.

Not surprisingly, the Detroit Lions highest rated player is wide receiver Calvin Johnson. His 93 overall rating gives him the distinction of being the only pixelated Detroit Lions player to crack the 90 mark. Ndamukong Suh is the defense’s highest rated player at 89 overall.

You may notice that two important names are not on the list: Stephen Tulloch and Justin Durant. Those acquisitions came too late in the game development process to be included in the out-of-the-box roster. Rest assured, a roster update will be available when the game is released later this month.

Stephen Tulloch’s rating was revealed with the rest of the Titans roster; he sports a solid overall rating of 88. Justin Durant is listed with an 83 rating for the Jaguars. New Lions cornerback Eric Wright and his 81 overall rating is still listed on the Browns.
