This Week’s Twitch Prime Legend for Madden — Rickey Jackson

Everyone’s QB’s are hitting the deck, because the week’s Twitch Prime Legend is New Orleans Saints sackmaster Rickey Jackson, with an 83 OVR!

Jackson was a member one of the best linebacking crews in NFL history, the Saints’ “Dome Patrol” (Which sounds like a really sweet Sci-Fi movie). He was undersized but went hard in the yard on every play, racking up 128 career sacks, 8 interceptions, 4 All-Pro selections, and 6 Pro Bowls. Offensive lineman had trouble handling his speed off the edge. Jackson grew up catching rabbits in sugar cane fields for money, so catching QB’s was easy for him.

Fun fact: Jackson’s first name was originally spelled “Ricky”; but he changed it to “Rickey” in high school. Because when you’re that good, you can do whatever you want.
