Leonard Fournette, like so many NFL players before him, believes he should be rated higher than he is in EA Sports’ “Madden 19.”

Check out the Jacksonville Jaguars star running back reacting to the initial reveal, which shows he landed an overall rating of 87.


Fournette replied to this tweet, which generated a response from the game’s Twitter account.

What a nice, genuine personal response…

After receiving this generic message, Fournette had enough. He then asked to be removed from the game entirely, either joking or not, we’re not sure.

He wrote, “I’m not sending nothing just take me off Madden Period and let my defense not be number one on there ima send to tackle h’all a**.”

So there you have it.

Somehow it seems hard to imagine Fournette won’t be playing as himself in the future, regardless of his beef with the rating.
