"He's 64-years-young and 31 years removed from his last NFL game, but Al "Bubba" Baker has finally received some very long overdue acclaim.
Upon Pro Football Reference’s recent reveal of sack statistics prior to the 1982 season, Baker's name sits unofficially atop the single-season list with 23 sacks during an all-time sensational rookie showing in 1978."
The actual all-time sack leader, Al "Bubba" Baker, has probably never been in Madden.
Dude played for the Lions, Browns, Cardinals, and Vikings.
I'll bet he wouldn't have this problem if he played for the Steelers, 49ers, Packers, or Cowboys. He'd probably be a perennial MUT legend and in the 99 club.
[EDIT: added "Suggestion" to the thread title to improve visibility if other players would like to support your suggestion]
Thanks for sharing the news, I was unaware of this! I'd like to see Al Baker in the game as well. In order for us to put past NFL players into the game we have to receive their rights to use their likeness. This can come from the player themselves or through a trust if they are no longer living. We'll share the request along to the team for you.
Would you want him to be in the lines of an LTD or part of a set you have to complete?
I did check https://footballgreatsalliance.com/roster/ and Al "Bubba" Baker doesn't appear to be listed.
Regardless, I always like the LTD's because I'd much rather play competitively online than play against the computer in a quest to complete sets.
Hopefully EA can cook up some new and interesting players in MUT.
Here's me making the same request in M21: https://forums.ea.com/en/madden-nfl/discussion/262291/frank-minnifield-browns#latest
Last year's additions of Ozzie Newsome, Frank Minnifield, and Michael Dean Perry were great. Let's keep it coming!
Sounds good! We should find out more about MUT in the weeks ahead. The team mentioned in a previous Gridiron Notes details will be coming early August.
