REPORT: Aaron Donald’s agent “insulted” by Los Angeles Rams contract extension offer

New, comments

In quite an interesting development, the Rams and Aaron Donald’s camp still have some work cut out for each other

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

If you’ve felt completely out of the loop when it comes to the Los Angeles Rams negotiating with star defensive lineman Aaron Donald’s camp on a contract extension, it’s because you have been.

But not anymore.

Per a report from Eric Geller - a freelance multi media sports journalist - the Rams have made some substantial offers:

Now, this is just a report and could be incorrect, but it’s nice to finally hear some news on the ongoing negotiations. It makes the situation of Donald skipping the start of training camp for a second-year clearer.

As the tweet notes, the Rams are more than willing to make Donald the highest paid defender in NFL history, though Donald’s camp isn’t satisfied. Not only are they searching for number one defender money, but they actually want quarterback money, per the report.

We could argue forever about whether Donald is worth it or not, but one thing’s for certain, neither side should want a divorce. Donald is arguably the best player in the entire league with the accolades piling in every year: four-time pro bowler, three-time first-team all-pro, NFL Defensive Player of the Year, NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, and so forth.

Let the negotiations continue.
