Aaron Rodgers officially ended his holdout on Tuesday, as the reigning MVP arrived at the Green Bay Packers’ facility for the start of training camp.
While some NFL stars like to show up to camp with a fancy car or bizarre outfit, Rodgers decided to wear an NBA Jam-inspired shirt that features Kevin Malone from “The Office” alongside a pot of chili.
The actor who played Kevin Malone in “The Office,” Brian Baumgartner, actually reacted to Rodgers’ outfit on social media.
“Welcome back,” Baumgartner tweeted. “Looking better than ever, Aaron Rodgers.”

Countless people responded to Baumgartner’s tweet with the clip of Kevin dropping the pot of chili all over the floor. Others pointed out how awesome it is to see Rodgers wear a shirt with Baumgartner’s character on it.
“It must be cool to have professional athletes wear your shirt,” one fan replied. “That’s how you know you’ve made it.”
Packers fans wasted no time searching the internet for Rodgers’ shirt. Fans can actually purchase the same shirt on homage.com, which has a great description for the item.
“Name a better duo, we’ll wait: it’s an NBA Jam-inspired fusion of meat, spices and Dunder Mifflin’s greatest accountant-chef, Kevin Malone. Put some boomshakalaka in your secret chili recipe with a super-soft tee for The Office’s greatest culinary team. Pay homage,” the site says.
