Draft Scout Aaron Donald News
05/22/17 - DE Aaron Donald was a no-show at the Los Angeles Rams' first full-team organized team activities on Monday, but his absence was contract-related. The Rams were aware in advance that Donald would not be there, and they appeared to be OK with it. Donald is in the fourth year of his five-year rookie contract, but Rams general manager Les Snead indicated the franchise and Donald are in the "serious stage" of renegotiating a new one. "I'm very hopeful about it," Snead said. Donald has been a Pro Bowl selection in each of his three NFL seasons. In 2017, he started all 16 games and recorded 47 tackles, eight sacks, five passes defensed and two forced fumbles. The question now is how much he is worth. "It's a process," Snead said. "We like Aaron. There's no doubt he's a really good player. We want him to be a Ram. That's our goal. We think he wants to be a Ram. That's what we're working toward."
