Former NFL quarterback Chris Simms dropped a surprising fact on his podcast in May, revealing that his good friend, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, named his son Carter after Lil Wayne.

The rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was apparently quite flattered, and recently sent Shanahan and his son signed copies of his albums along with a personal message, according to TMZ Sports.
