The 26-year-old, who signed a six-year contract extension with a record $61 million guaranteed on Wednesday, now has his intricate real-life tattoos depicted in Madden 15’s virtual world. And as a testament to how far humanity has come since playing Pong on an 8-bit Atari, Kaepernick’s virtual tattoos look really, really real. Look at this screenshot of the game that its developer, Electronic Arts, released Wednesday night.
