We expect Aaron Rodgers to photobomb the Green Bay Packers team captains’ photo each week, so we kind of stopped paying attention.
We shouldn’t have.
It looks like Rodgers took a subtle jab at his Chicago Bears counterpart Jay Cutler in last Sunday’s photobomb. Rodgers appears to have something in his mouth.
That something appears to be a cigarette.
Why is this a jab at Cutler? Because Jay Cutler and his hang-dog expression was the subject of the Internet meme Smokin’ Jay Cutler earlier this year.
In it, each photo of Cutler features a cigarette dangling out of his mouth.
Before anyone assumes the Rodgers photo was anything more than joke, it should be noted that he’s supposedly good friends with Cutler.
Smokin’ Jay went to Vanderbilt, which is where Rodgers’ brother Jordan currently plays quarterback, and Rodgers has credited Cutler with helping Jordan.
