Madden, who was also a longtime broadcaster, made an impact on a ton of former and current NFL players, as well as fellow sports journalists, and he was the face of Madden NFL Football, one of the most successful sports video games of all time.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady reacted to Madden’s death on social media.

"John called our first Super Bowl," Brady wrote on his Instagram story. "He was always so good to me. RIP to a legend of our game. My condolences and love to the Madden family."

Madden was on the call when Brady played in his first Super Bowl as a member of the New England Patriots back in 2002. Brady and the Patriots went on to beat Kurt Warner and the St. Louis Rams in that game 20-17.

When Brady engineered the game-winning drive late in that contest, Madden said that Brady gave him "goosebumps" just before legendary kicker Adam Vinatieri booted the field goal that gave the Patriots their first Super Bowl title.
