The Arizona Cardinals have found a unique way to reboot the always beloved foam finger while also paying tribute to injured safety Rashad Johnson.

Here's our two cents: We applaud the Cardinals for their creativity. The foam finger is a good idea, but it might make fans a little squeamish. Plus, this isn't exactly the most child-friendly souvenir.
