In the wake of being released from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021, it looks as though Antonio Brown has signed on to a new role to empower fellow athletes.
In an Instagram post, it appears that Antonio Brown revealed he’s joined Kanye West’s Donda Sports, an organization that Rolling Stone reports is “meant to provide ‘professional and wellness support’ to athletes.”
“WE THE OWNERS NOW! Donda is about ownership, empowerment, and discovering the next superheroes. This is for the people who counted us out, for everyone who said we can’t — we say WE WILL,” the former Buccaneers player announced via Instagram.
When it comes to uplifting the youth, Brown is stepping into his new reported role with a bang. Ahead of the Super Bowl LVI — on Feb. 13 — taking place in Los Angeles, Brown has rented out a $2 million suite and secured lower VIP passes for young kids, according to Rolling Stone.
“As President, it was important to me to book the Donda suite for this year’s SUPERBOWL LVI. This is a game meant to be watched together. This is the love and unity we need to push. THIS IS FOR THE KIDS, OUR NEXT GENERATION!!!” he shared.

According to Brown, the organization will also be hosting community events for kids and their families during the Super Bowl weekend.
Antonio Brown's Take On Joining Donda Sports
“We’re just excited about the Donda Sports brand, and making this thing a competitive sports brand to the athletes,” Brown told Complex. “I don’t think there’s a lot of fashion lines for athletes, wearing fashionable and comfortable clothes, so with a guy like Kanye West, being able to partner with him and work with him to provide more creative, genius ideas for fashion looks for athletes in general.”
He continued: “I’m just grateful for the opportunity here soon, to share what we’ve got with the world. And you guys are hearing it first, we got some exciting things to look forward to this year.”
