Unless you were sleeping under a rock yesterday (and judging by the 300+ comments on 3k’s rundown of Kevin Demoff’s interview on San Diego sports radio — you weren’t), you heard what the Rams COO had to say regarding the ongoing contract stalemate with Aaron Donald. Cam DaSilva’s take here.
Can’t get enough Demoff/AD coverage? Neither can we. It’s as if reading every single post about his comments will somehow land 99 in camp. Hey, it’s worth a shot.
The LA Times says that if Donald doesn’t show up for work, it’s time to move on.
It appears that Jared Goff is quickly developing chemistry with his new weapon.

(Update: they’ve got a little ways to go based on their sloppy effort in the HOF game)
