Aaron Rodgers’ 18th NFL season is off to an interesting start.
Just weeks after arriving at training camp dressed as Nicolas Cage’s Cameron Poe from the 1997 drama, “Con Air,” the Packers quarterback revealed Tuesday that there’s a bust of the actor in his locker.
“It’s Nic Cage,” Rodgers, 38, told reporters from the locker room, according to a video taken by ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, who added the reigning league NFL MVP “doesn’t know who sent it.”
In a separate clip, Rodgers is seen giving the media a closer look at the bust to see just how closely it resembles Cage, 58.
Rodgers has certainly been having a memorable summer, parts of which he’s chronicled on social media. In July, the quarterback revealed that he got his first “deep and meaningful” tattoo that contains illustrations related to astrology.
“First tattoo. From the ? himself @balazsbercsenyi Grateful for his mastery and friendship,” Rodgers wrote on Instagram at the time.
“There’s a deep and meaningful story and connection to absolutely each element of this art piece, and I’ll share a little more about that one day. For now, just thankful for @balazsbercsenyi and his patience and artistry. #tattoo #astrology #theelements.”
Internet sleuths went on to link Rodgers’ body art to that of his rumored girlfriend, Blu, who recently commented on the quarterback’s “legendary” podcast interview with Aubrey Marcus.
In the wide-ranging discussion with Marcus, Rodgers opened up about his family, mental health, and his past use of psychedelic drugs.
The Packers will open the regular season on the road against the Vikings on Sept. 11. It remains to be seen if Rodgers’ bust of Cage will make the trip.
