While the Rams fans are still unsure whether they will see Super Bowl champion Aaron Donald return to the field, they can look forward to new potential collaborations from the NFL star as he just signed a new contract with Donda Sports Agency, Kanye West's latest business endeavor.

The three-time defense player of the year announced his new agency for off-field deals and sponsorships on his appearance on the I am Athlete podcast.

"My wife actually does my marketing," Donald said.

"It was an opportunity that came to us and it made sense. Hearing the whole spectrum of everything that they was gonna be bringing, the family atmosphere that they got at Donda Sports... for me, it was a no-brainer."

Donald hints at retirement

Donda Sports' first athlete partnership was announced in February, when former Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown took on a president leadership role for the brand. The 33-year-old has since suggested that his playing career might be over.

In similar fashion, Donald hinted at his own retirement prior to the Rams' Super Bowl win in February, and is reportedly still open to hanging up the cleats if Los Angeles doesn't meet his contract demands ahead of 2022.

Either way, Donald is now one of the first active athletes Donda Sports has on its books.
