With EA Sports extending its exclusive rights to simulation NFL football games with the popular Madden NFL video game franchise last week, the old "NFL 2K5" came back up in the news again.

It was the last simulation NFL game made by anyone but EA Sports. 2K recently agreed to a deal with the NFL that allows them to make arcade-style games which should help them get their foot in the door once EA's current deal expires after 2026.

However, one Dolphins fan didn't feel like waiting a few more years and took it upon himself to update "NFL 2K5" with current rosters.

It reminds you a bit of the people who still update "NCAA Football 2014" even though that was the last iteration of the game published. It might not be enough to give the current "Madden" a run for its money, but at least it's an alternative, for now.
