On Tuesday, Aaron Rodgers, the reigning MVP of the National Football League walked into the first day of training camp for the Green Bay Packers looking like a dead-ringer for Nicolas Cage from the cult classic 90s film "Con Air."
Cage's enthralling performance in the 1997 action thriller would go on to help launch the award-winning careers of several unknown actors at the time, including Ving Rhames, Dave Chappelle, and Steve Buscemi. In that regard, Aaron Rodgers is also hoping to uplift the careers of a relatively unknown supporting cast on offense, as his wide receivers unit will lock to duplicate the success in 2021 without the services of Davante Adams, who departed the Packers for the Las Vegas Raiders during the off-season.
If so, the 38-year-old quarterback could be in line to win his third straight MVP next January, which is a prestigious feat that has only been accomplished by one other NFL player, his predecessor in Green Bay, Brett Favre. Only time will tell. Until then, Rogers seems content with flirting with retirement, trolling the media with hot takes about being "Anti-vax," and cosplaying as Cameron Poe for his own entertainment.
