Training camps are getting ready to start around the NFL this week, and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made an entrance to the team facility on Tuesday that has the NFL world talking.
The Packers’ social media team posted a video of Rodgers arriving at the facility, walking in slow motion while rocking a white tank top and jeans with his patented long hair.

On the surface, there is nothing out of the ordinary in this video. But people quickly caught on that Rodgers showed a striking resemblance to actor Nicolas Cage‘s character of Cameron Poe in 1997’s “Con Air”.

It’s unclear if Rodgers was really going for that look. But the resemblance is definitely striking, with the outfit to match.
Rodgers and the Packers have had a tumultuous offseason. It was first rumored that Rodgers might go to the Denver Broncos in a potential trade.
Rodgers appears to be cautiously optimistic about his receiving corps next season. He previously said the group has a lot of potential, but needs to provide the production to go along with that next year.
Hopefully this playful video means that Rodgers is in good spirits heading into the upcoming season.
