49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk says his son can be anything except a fan of this one team

Feb 24, 2021 at 11:12 AM--


Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk's mother is a San Francisco 49ers fan. She was a fan even before her favorite team drafted her son.

"My mom has been a huge 49ers fan her whole life," Aiyuk told reporters shortly after being drafted, "so that kind of bled on me a little bit when I was younger."

Aiyuk was asked if that fandom stuck with him throughout his childhood.

"So, I wouldn't say a fan throughout," he responded. "I just kind of just move with players. But, definitely, when I was younger, I was rolling with the 49ers because of my mom."

Aiyuk and his girlfriend, Rochelle, had a son, Braylon, in September. Now that Aiyuk is a father, he is hoping for the best for Braylon. The 49ers receiver says his son can be anything he desires in life. Well, there is one limitation that dad is requiring.

Braylon cannot be a Seattle Seahawks fan (h/t to Jordan Cohn of Radio.com). Except -- Aiyuk used a certain emoji while typing out the name of the division rival.


Teammates like tight end George Kittle and defensive end Ronald Blair left comments, sharing their approval.

With one season under his belt, the hope is that Aiyuk will have a lengthy and successful career with the 49ers. Maybe Braylon will enjoy watching his father embarrass opposing defenses at Levi's Stadium one day.

As a rookie, Aiyuk led the team in receptions (60), receiving yards (748), and receiving touchdowns (5) while appearing in just 12 games.

On March 26, the San Francisco 49ers shocked the NFL world by executing a blockbuster trade, moving up nine spots in the upcoming draft to No. 3 overall. After quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson are likely taken off the draft board with the top two selections, the Niners will have their choice of three prospects — Justin Fields of Ohio State, Trey Lance of North Dakota State, or the less popular choice among fans, Mac Jones of Alabama. Fields and Lance are seen as more athletic, and analysts feel both are the better long-term prospects when compared to Jones. Of course, the most important evaluation will come from head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch, with the former likely having the most influence in the decision. Most mock
