This Week’s Twitch Prime Legend for Madden — Lawrence Taylor

Get hyped for this week’s Twitch Prime Legend in Madden Ultimate Team: linebacker LAWRENCE TAYLOR, with an 83 OVR!

Hailed as one of the GOAT’s, LT tore up the NFL from ’81-’93 with the New York Giants. He won 2 Super Bowls, was first-team All-Pro for nine straight seasons, racked up a ridiculous 132 sacks, and is one of only two defensive players in the history of the NFL to win the MVP award. He didn’t just change other team’s game plans, he changed the game itself.

“Lawrence Taylor, defensively, has had as big an impact as any player I’ve ever seen. He changed the way defense is played, the way pass-rushing is played, the way linebackers play and the way offenses block linebackers.”

  • John Madden

If that’s not a legend, we don’t know what is. So add LT to your squad and show these young bucks how the game is played.
