EA Sports College Football: NFL Tigers want all-time Auburn team

With the announcement of the new EA Sports College Football game in the works, former Auburn Tigers want all-time teams to be incorporated into the game.

Darius Slayton, currently a wide receiver for the New York Giants, played Auburn football from 2016-2018. Over three seasons on the Plains, he logged 79 receptions, 1605 receiving yards, and 11 touchdowns. He was picked up by the Giants in the fifth round of the 2019 draft.

Slayton was not the only former Tiger with this opinion–several others got involved in the conversation as well, including Carlton Davis, who will be playing in Super Bowl LV tonight.

Davis played 38 games in the cornerback position over three seasons for Auburn football and racked up 138 career tackles. 2020 marks Davis’ third season with the Tamba Bay Buccaneers, and this season he is up to 52 tackles and four interceptions.

Also chiming in was former Auburn defensive back, Daniel Thomas, who played for the Tigers from 2016-2019.

In 51 games over his career at Auburn, Thomas recorded 199 total tackles and five interceptions, one of which resulted in a touchdown. Thomas was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the fifth round of the 2020 draft. This season, Thomas has notched 18 total tackles, two pass deflections, and one interception.

While Darius Slayton’s suggestion for the EA Sports College Football game isn’t a bad one, many fans on Twitter think that it isn’t going to happen. According to some, if it isn’t on Madden it certainly won’t be on this game–and the people definitely want it on Madden.

Others point out that if that were to happen, the players would need to be paid for their likeness on the game–something most people feel the NCAA will not be doing.

Regardless of the complications, no one is denying that it would be pretty sick to play with Auburn football greats on the new game. Here’s hoping that someone at EA Sports will listen to Darius Slayton.
