EA's Madden Ratings Czar, Donny Moore, has just announced that the Week 3 Roster Update is available and ready to download on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

There over 340+ transactions and player rating adjustments in this update, so I'll highlight a few of the major ones.

Cam Newton continued his hot streak (even though they still lost) and had another solid outing against the Packers. As a result, he got another boost in overall going from 81 to 82 overall. But he wasn't the only Panther to get credit. Wide receiver Steve Smith got a overall boost from 91 to 93.

The most positive ratings gain goes to Oakland Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore with a nine point boost this week (now 73 overall). Also, getting a boost is Detroit Lions young QB Matthew Stafford who got a 3 point boost raising his overall to 85.

Of course, with the good comes the bad. Defensive back Jon McGraw dropped 3 overall points (78 to 75 overall), OL Frank Omiyale (from 71 to 67 overall) and James Sanders (from 82 to 80 overall).

Club 99 got ANOTHER addition. This time Dallas Cowboys star linebacker DeMarcus Ware joins the most elite club in all of football! No player has more sacks over the last five seasons and Ware is already off to a hot start in 2011 with four sacks. Keep a close eye no another player close to joining the club. Houston Texans star receiver, Andre Johnson moved up one point to 98 overall after another solid performance last week.

Those are a few of the big changes in this weeks update. Below are a few more noteworthy updates.

  • Arizona Cardinals HB Beanie Wells, increase 76 to 78 overall
  • Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green, increase 80 to 82 overall
  • Cleveland Browns QB Colt McCoy, increase 77 to 78 overall
