Video: Jerry Jeudy walks off after Madden rating revealed
Athletes tend to take pride in their ratings when it comes to video games. Just ask Denver Broncos rookie wideout Jerry Jeudy.
The Madden franchise has slowly been unveiling its ratings for rookies over the course of the past week, and Jeudy checks in as the third-highest rated rookie receiver at 75 overall. That number does not sit kindly with the former Alabama star.
Jeudy walked off camera when former All-Pro wideout Chad Johnson revealed his rating during a Zoom interview on Sunday, leaving Johnson in stitches.

Jeudy’s former Alabama teammate, Henry Ruggs III, is the highest-rated rookie with a 76 overall rating. Former Oklahoma star and Dallas Cowboys first-round pick CeeDee Lamb joins Jeudy in the 75 club.
The Broncos did not hesitate to pick Jeudy–regarded by some as the best wideout in this year’s draft class–when he fell to them with the 15th overall pick.
Denver will hope Jeudy and fellow rookie KJ Hamler can be productive alongside Courtland Sutton as the Broncos look to make strides in a crowded AFC West.
