This weekend's Ultimate Legends release marks the return of Jerome Bettis to the mode who hasn't had a new card since his initial Football Outsiders version back in September. He is significantly better this time around with 101 trucking, 103 stiff arm (after his boost is applied), and 98 strength. Along with Bettis, this round of content features two other MUT fan favorites in Deion Sanders and Shannon Sharpe. Here's the content list:
You can find Sanders and Sharpe in packs directly. Bettis is the solo challenge reward this week so you'll have to complete his 35-card collection to unlock his solo challenge. Defeating it rewards his Ultimate Legend player card.

Which cards are you most excited about being back in packs for the weekend?
Earlier today another set of three Ultimate Legends were released featuring Kurt Warner, Walter Payton, and Sean Taylor. Both Payton and Taylor are fan favorites in the Madden Ultimate Team community and are arguably the best players at their respective positions currently in the game. While Warner comes with impressive passing stats, his 62 speed and 64 agility severely limit his ability to scramble or even move effectively in the pocket. Here are today's new Ultimate Legends:
Warner is this week's collection reward which means you'll have to complete his 35-card collection and defeat his solo challenge to add his Ultimate Legend card to your starting lineup. You can find the other two cards released today directly in packs.

Three more Ultimate Legends were released this morning including Mike Webster, Walter Jones, and Joe Montana. Webster and Jones can provide a nice upgrade for most offensive lines. Montana may not offer the same mobility as other popular MUT quarterbacks, but he comes with the best deep ball in the game. Here are the stats on these guys:
Webster is this week's collection reward, so you'll have to complete his 35-card collection and defeat his solo challenge to unlock his newest card. You can find Walter Jones and Joe Montana in packs directly.
