After Electronic Arts broke off a 15-year relationship with Tiger Woods, the golfer is doing what many in his situation would -- he's trying to rebound. The most recognizable name in professional golf is courting videogame publishers to feature him in a new game.

Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, broke the news to ESPN, but didn't comment on how negotiations were going. "We had an incredible run. Outside of Madden, you would be hard pressed to find a sports figure that meant as much to a videogame company as Tiger meants to EA. But, times are changing and EA had to re-evaluate the partnership, and frankly, so did we," Steinberg commented.

EA will continue its pro golf franchise without the iconic Woods. As far as Tiger's concerned, let's file this under "Cautiously Optimistic"; after all, we could have the next Ken Griffey, Jr. Presents Major League Baseball on our hands.

EA spent tons of money on this 'kooky' 'viral' Madden trailer

I bet the people involved had a lot of fun shooting this offbeat Madden 15 commercial. It's also an obviously expensive production (beyond the celebrity costs) meant to be "weird" and, hopefully, shared (viral) over the Net....more
