Akin Ayodele talks about his brother

February, 5, 2010
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- We're not sure if you read our story on the Ayodele brothers.

Akin, who plays for the Dolphins and Remi, who is playing for the Saints in Sunday's Super Bowl are sharing in this experience.

"I'm proud, very proud of him," Akin said of his younger brother on Friday. "It's very deserving."

Remi said he's got 15 tickets to the game and asked his brother Akin to become his ticket broker.
"Man, I got all kinds of requests, still need tickets," Akin said.

As far as the future, Akin is in the final year of his deal with the Miami Dolphins and the team has a roster bonus on him due in March.

"I have no idea, you have to ask [general manager] Jeff Ireland," Ayodele said. "I have one year left on my deal and I have a bonus coming up. I want to be a Dolphin and I don't see why I wouldn't be here."
