Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown is having a historic 2023 season, but it’s not been good enough to become his own nephew’s favorite player.
The 26-year-old superstar wide receiver took to Twitter/X to reveal that he will not be purchasing his nephew Christmas gifts after learning that Vikings WR Justin Jefferson, not Brown himself, is his favorite player.
Brown is currently third in catches (67), second in receiving yards (1,005) and tied for fourth in touchdowns (6). Brown still has eight games to add to those totals, and his nephew has roughly seven weeks left to change his mind. He’s also a dark-horse MVP candidate.
At least Brown can take solace in the fact that the Eagles are sitting atop the NFC East, no matter what his nephew thinks. Philadelphia is on its bye this week before a marquee showdown against the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 20.
