As he waits impatiently for his broken collarbone to heal, Aaron Rodgers took a moment to do that other thing he does almost as well as he plays football: he photobombed his teammates.

Just before the coin-toss before the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Green Bay Packers quarterback slipped into a little disguise and, yep, there he was, dressed as Santa, behind Sam Shields, John Kuhn and Jarrett Boykin.


This started innocently and simply enough, but Rodgers has begun incorporating props — like an airhorn and a Muppet — into his act. (Roger Goodell can’t fine him for that, can he?)

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody. (Courtesy
