Madden NFL 13 Roster Update: 49ers, Raiders See Significant Increases

Week 1 of the 2012 NFL season is in the books, which means the first substantial roster update is on its way. Naturally, EA Sports screwed up and had to push it back, but it will be out on Friday, regardless. There's not big jumps for any team in the NFL, but the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders both see changes.

For San Francisco, they find that safety Donte Whitner is dropping a single point from an 88 overall to an 87. Other than that, the rest of the players are all increases, most notably Alex Boone getting into the 70s with a three-point increase. Three members of San Francisco's offensive line went up as they generally fared well against the Green Bay Packers' pass-rush in a 30-22 win.

The Oakland Raiders find themselves with multiple players going up in rating and no decreases. Rolondo McClain is the most significant increase as he's the only player above 73 to go up. He goes up a single point. No players get decreases for the Raiders, though there are some changes to the depth chart. Make the jump for the full 49ers and Raiders ratings changes.
