Former Pitt Star Aaron Donald Signs Record Contract With the LA Rams

Published

on

The Los Angeles Rams ended any talk of a possible early retirement for Aaron Donald by agreeing with him on a new contract.

The superstar defensive tackle agreed to a restructured contract that makes him the highest-paid non quarterback in the NFL.

According to Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network, Donald and the Rams agreed to deal that guarantees him $65 million over the next two seasons and $95 million through the 2024 season. Although no years were added to the deal, Donald picked up an additional $40 million and will be making a league-leading $31.6 million per year on average.

The Rams organization is compensating Donald for being the most dominant defensive player in the NFL for the last handful of years. The Penn Hills native is a seven-time All Pro, a member of the Hall of Fame’s All-2010s team and a three-time AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

Donalds was the Rams 1st Round pick (13th overall) in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Just to think, two scholarship offers because he was too small to play defensive tackle in FBS.
