Pro Football Talk just tweeted that the Los Angeles Rams will have a press conference set for Tuesday to “discuss” the Aaron Donald deal:

This is interesting, particularly for the “maximum P.R. impact” angle. Maximizing the impact of public relations fits the Rams’ business operations under COO/Vice President of Operations Kevin Demoff.

The timing is strange though. It may have something to do with a major college football game on Monday night between Florida State and Virginia Tech blanketing ESPN networks. It also comes out of the Labor Day weekend as we slingshot into Week 1 of the regular season.

As recently reported, the talks have seriously heated up from both the Rams and Donald’s side, as there is a reported urgency to get this deal done with the regular season creeping up in days.

For a saga that seemed like it was never ending, this suggests it’s finally coming to a bright end for both sides. Though it took long, one thing was for certain: neither side was ready for a divorce.
