Fresh off winning the Super Bowl, Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald has inked a deal with Kanye West’s Donda Sports.

Donald announced the partnership during a recent appearance on I Am Athlete, a podcast hosted by former NFL stars Brandon Marshall, Adam “Pacman” Jones and LeSean McCoy.

“It was an opportunity that came to us, me and [my wife], and it made sense. Hearing the whole spectrum of what they were going to be bringing, the whole family atmosphere that they got in Donda Sports. Not just me, but my wife being a part of that. For me it was a no-brainer,” Donald explained.

The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year continued, “I think it’s a helluva opportunity to open up a lot of different doors and a lot of different things outside of football that I wanna be involved in, that I wanna do, that my wife wanna do. So to be a part of that, and be one of the best first athletes to be a part of that, it’s pretty dope. We’re excited about it, and we’re gonna see where this thing goes.”

Donald went on to say that he hung out with Ye, who launched Donda Sports earlier this year.

“He cool man. He real cool. A cool dude. Got to talk a little bit. Vibe,” he shared. “Was at one of his video shoots. He actually wanted me to get in one of the videos, but I was like, ‘Naw.’ I was out my element. But he was cool.”

The Super Bowl champion also said that Kanye’s pivot into the sports industry is “something he’s serious about.”

“Donda Sports is something close to him, obviously, with his mother and everything,” Donald said. “So he definitely wants this to be something that’s top tier and something he’s serious about.”
