Aaron Donald Signs With Kanye West’s Marketing Agency

Three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and Super Bowl champion Aaron Donald has signed with Kanye West’s Donda Sports agency. Donald made the announcement in an interview on the I AM ATHLETE show.

The full episode has not yet been released. However, in a published clip, Donald indicated it was a no-brainer to link up with Donda Sports, which will incorporate his wife who has also been handling his marketing opportunities in the past.

In February, Antonio Brown posted on his Instagram account that he had become the President of Donda Sports. That post has since been deleted.

What we know about Donda Sports is that it intends to be more than a marketing agency, and has ambitions to be a bigger brand that includes apparel, sneakers, and other types of goods. There is no reason to believe that Donald is in any way contemplating a change from his NFLPA certified Contract Advisor, who is Todd France of Athletes First.
