The deal will provide him with not only modeling gigs but also advertisement and endorsement opportunities.“I’m a football player first and foremost, but fashion is something that I’m also interested in exploring right now,” Amendola said, via GQ. “I’m really grateful to Ford for giving me that opportunity.”Amendola made his runway debut earlier this year at New York Fashion Week when he walked in designer Phillipp Plein’s show.
