The folks at EA Sports have released their latest roster update for Madden 13 and it’s a big one for the Detroit Lions.
A couple of the changes are roster moves to reflect the current state of the team. Drayton Florence and Ben Graham have been removed from the active roster while Nick Harris has been added. Titus Young receives a name change to reflect his “Young Sr.” jersey nameplate.
The bulk of the changes have to do with tweaks to player ratings. Six Lions have downgraded while seven get a slight bump.
