Several NFL players have complained in recent days about their Madden ratings, with some telling fans to boycott the game, others describing themselves as salty, and others saying they’ll use Madden as extra motivation. But we haven’t heard from the lowest-rated player in the game.

That would be Saints long snapper Zach Wood, whose overall rating of 36 makes him the worst player in the NFL, if the Madden ratings are to be believed.

Long snappers dominate the bottom of the Madden ratings, possibly because EA Sports doesn’t want gamers putting them at other positions, but it’s unclear why Wood is dead last below the rest of them. He and other long snappers are listed at tight end, as long snappers often are, for reasons that don’t make a lot of sense.

The lowest-rated non-long snapper is Washington quarterback Josh Woodrum with a 44 rating, followed by Chiefs quarterback Chase Litton and Giants quarterback Alex Tanney, each with a 45.

  1. It’s a bit disrespectful to rank a player in the mid 30s low 40s, I mean after all these guys are in the NFL and getting paid for a reason. A 36 makes this guy out to be a joke, which if you’re on an actual NFL roster you definitely are not a joke.

  2. Here come the snide comments mocking him, but Wood has the last laugh. He’s at least in the NFL and none of us are….

  3. Eventually some team will wise up and stop wasting a roster spot on a long snapper specialist and train their backup center or something to do it 98% as well

    It’s like when somebody makes fun of the 10th man on the NBA bench– he’s still one of the top 300 players in the *world*. Then again, [I]someone[/I] has to be the lowest ranked player in Madden.

  5. If the biggest concern of these guys is their Madden ratings, then their life isn’t going too bad!

  6. if you are going to put long snappers in the game than figure out how to make ratings where it is actually worth using them as long snappers. if his rating as TE is 22 who cares? make the game to where it is worth using a roster spot on a long snapper, other wise don’t put them on there
