The reigning NFL MVP arrived to training camp completely Cameron Poe-inspired attire, channeling Cage’s character from the 1997 action flick “Con Air.”
On Tuesday, there is something left in Rodger’s locker to prove that someone took note of the reigning MVP’s fascination with the Academy Award-winning actor.
“It’s Nic Cage,” Rodgers said of the bust left in his locker after practice. “Somebody just sent this if you ask me yesterday without message.”
Although it continues to be unclear who was simply in charge of the gift, it would appear that he was grateful for the surprise.
The SAINTS traveled to Wisconsin for joint practices with the Packers this week, so it’s possible that the news headlines of Rodger’s fandom spread to the Bayou and perhaps the bust tagged along for the trip.
