NFL Rookie of the Year, Brian Orakpo unveils new Bane mask

You’re probably familiar with the most high profile superhero enthusiast on the Washington Redskins. You know, the guy who wore Superman socks to the Heisman Trophy ceremony and ended up winning NFL rookie of the year?

What you may not know is that there’s another comic book fan on the team, except this one plays on the other side of the ball.

Linebacker Brian Orakpo is taking a cue from a Batman character as he enters his fifth season with the Redskins. Part of a growing trend of defenders who are adopting a new grill for their facemasks to make it harder for lineman to grab onto their helmets, Orakpo has unveiled his new “Bane” look.

Fans of Christopher Nolan’s Batman series will recognize Bane as the masked supervillian who tries to take down Batman in The Dark Knight Rises. Bane sports a mask over his mouth, which inspired Orakpo as he searched for a new grill.
