Browns RB Peyton Hillis in the running to be on cover of Madden '12

CLEVELAND - A Cleveland Browns player is in the running to get on the cover of the popular Madden NFL Series video game.

Browns running back Peyton Hillis is one of the candidates to be on the cover of Madden 12, and fans can vote on the cover online.

The picks will be decided bracket style, much as you would choose teams in the NCAA tournament.

Hillis is going up against Ray Rice in the first round, and he made his case for getting on this year's cover.

"I think that with a running back like me that can do it all ya know, run, block, catch, real versatile," said Hillis. "You know, white running back on the cover? That would be the first time in, I don't know when. It would be the first time ever."

First-round results will be announced on Monday.
