Although his team lost to the Kansas City Chiefs at the 2024 Super Bowl on Feb. 11, Brandon has given his girlfriend a lot to cheer about over the years of his career. While he is dedicated to his role as a wide receiver on the field, he is a passionate family man when the cleats and gloves come off.
