The good news is that players don’t need to make roster changes on their own unless that is of preference. EA Sports regularly makes changes to the Madden rosters, including adding players who were not in the game but are active in the NFL to modifying overall stats ratings to reflect real-life performances.

Steps to update rosters in Madden NFL 23

To update the rosters in Madden NFL 23, first, go to the home screen and select the NFL logo on the home screen. This is the Rosters & Playbooks menu, and you can change the rosters by choosing the ‘Edit Rosters’ tab. After doing that, you can attempt to update the rosters by selecting the ‘Update Rosters’ option.

A few things to note about this feature: you will need an active Internet connection. Second and more importantly, there must be a new roster update to download. If you click on this option and get a message stating, “You already have the latest Roster,” you’re good to go as far as having the most up-to-date roster.

EA typically updates these rosters around once a week. So, the roster that you have at a particular time may not be completely accurate. You may need to wait a couple of days after roster moves before those transactions become reflected in the game.
