Aaron Rodgers became a hotshot personality in the NFL. But he is also someone who openly speaks on criticism. The QB became a chosen one for the Packers. But he hasn’t been afraid to say that he believes Green Bay’s administration can run more effectively. Recently, he raised the cap over the Packers’ mismanagement when the franchise’s No. 1 pick got mistaken for somebody else.

Just as impressive as his on-field performance is, Aaron Rodgers’ off-field antics are also a thing to observe. Especially during the training camp days, when he arrives as an iconic film character portrayed by Nicolas Cage. Be it him having fun in the camps or speaking to the media, A-Rod is having a good time.

Rodgers mentions via PFT, “There’s funny stories — not funny, actually — about like Kenny Clark coming in on cut day and somebody thinking he was a different guy who was gonna get cut. And they told him, ‘Grab your playbook and head upstairs.’ And Kenny’s like, ‘What? I was a first-round pick. I’m getting cut? In my third year?’ Stuff like just can’t happen in an organization that’s run well. Because the relationships are the most important thing in this game. Because that’s what fuels the chemistry… And it starts at the top.”

Luckily for the Packers, things have tightened up on the vessel since Rodgers’ extension. Hopefully, everything works properly.
