GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's a weekly tradition before every Packers game, with the three team captains lining up on the field for an official photograph. Well, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has his own tradition with the team-captain pictures: He photobombs every single one of them. When Rodgers first began showing up in the back of those pictures -- he was still Brett Favre's backup -- there wasn't much to it. Rodgers would just stand there. But in recent years, it's evolved into much more than that for the NFL's reigning Most Valuable Player. "When I got here it was kind of something that we did, (former teammate) Craig Nall and I, just randomly got in the back of these pictures," Rodgers told FOXSportsWisconsin.com on Thursday. "It went from kind of randomly getting in the back, then people would notice us in the picture every week and started to ask if that was on purpose. "Eventually, the guys were looking for it, so I started doing some different things with faces and props and whatnot. It's kind of grown from there." Last New Year's Eve, when the Packers beat the Detroit Lions behind backup quarterback Matt Flynn, Rodgers was blowing a noisemaker in the picture. Memorable props this season include the pirate-inspired eye patches Rodgers and fellow quarterback Graham Harrell wore. "The eye patch was definitely top five," Rodgers said. "I like the cups on the ears, I like that. I like the one on New Year's last year, we were blowing those noisemakers." When props are involved, Rodgers is assisted by Packers communications coordinator Don Raddatz, who is on the team's sideline during games and has a few items at his disposal. The problem now is, how can Rodgers continue coming up with new ideas to make the team-captain photos unique and interesting for years to come? "It's tough to try and keep that up every week," Rodgers said. "It's a lot of pressure." Follow Paul Imig on Twitter.
