Modell's Sporting Goods in Times Square seems to hire employees that bear a striking resemblance to star athletes. It is almost uncanny how much these sales associates look like players in the NFL or NBA. Over the weekend, they introduced their newest employee, Aice.
Aice follows the athlete-look-alike tradition at Modell's. In fact, he looks a lot like Miami Dolphins wide receiver Greg Jennings, a two-time Pro Bowl selection and Super Bowl XLV Champion with the Green Bay Packers.
Will anyone recognize Jennings as he plays the role of Aice?
Jennings caught 19 passes this past season for Miami, his first in South Florida. He had 208 receiving yards with one touchdown. He spent the two previous seasons with the Minnesota Vikings after a seven-year stint with the Packers. Jennings was expected to be the veteran leader of the wide receiver group this year in Miami, but lost playing time as the season progressed and Rishard Matthews and DeVante Parker grew into expanded roles with the club.
