KANSAS CITY, Mo. — On Tuesday, the Madden 23 ratings for linebackers were released and one Kansas City Chiefs linebacker was not thrilled with his rating.
Willie Gay Jr. received a 69 overall rating in the game, the same rating given to rookie Leo Chenal, and 10 ratings lower than his fellow starting linebacker Nick Bolton.
@EAMaddeNNFL just take me off the game lol@WillieG___ in response to a screenshot of his rating
The ratings released ahead of the game’s official release in August are preliminary, and are subject to change via several on and off-field factors.
Gay is entering his third year in the NFL and has 87 tackles, 1.5 sacks and 2 interceptions in his career.
With the departure of veteran linebacker Anthony Hitchens, Gay and Bolton are the presumed starters at the position for defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.
