July 14 (UPI) -- One of Tom Brady's favorite New England Patriots targets is now a male model.

Wide receiver Danny Amendola recently signed as a model for Ford Modeling agency. The agency is based out of New York City.

Despite his new deal locked down and a sensational wardrobe, Amendola said Brady still leads the locker room in men's fashion.

"...everyone else just kind of competes for second place," he told Patriots.com.

"We are thrilled to represent Danny Amendola, not only one of the top athletes in his field, but also a man of great character," Ford Models men's director Sam Doerfler said in a press release. "Danny's work ethic, drive, and track record of success help make him the perfect fit to partner with some of the best brands and creative teams in the fashion industry, and we look forward to bringing him those opportunities."

Amendola, 31, is dating Olivia Cuplo. Culpo was the 2012 Miss USA winner and has 1.9 million Instagram followers.

"I am truly excited to be represented by Ford Models and to be a part of their substantial legacy in the modeling industry," Amendola said in the press release. "While football has been my primary focus, I have always appreciated fashion and I look forward to collaborating with designers I admire and respect."

Amendola made his runway debut last year at New York Fashion Week at Philipp Plein's show.

The wide receiver had a career-high four touchdowns last season, while managing 243 yards on 23 receptions. He has won two Super Bowls with the franchise.

Ford Models also represents Channing Tatum.
