Rams All-Pro Tackle Aaron Donald Abruptly Ends His Holdout

Sep 10 2017 Los Angeles CA USA Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff

The Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman showed up to the team's facility Saturday afternoon after a preseason-long absence.

Donald's representatives and the Rams will continue to work towards reaching a new deal, the team reported on their website Saturday. Donald has stayed away from the Rams since offseason team activities in May, demanding a new contract after three standout National Football League seasons.

Rams head coach Sean McVay confirmed Friday that his star defensive tackle will miss Sunday's game against the Colts, as the Rams try to steal a win against an Indianapolis team playing without Andrew Luck. Donald's teammates said he was staying active and training back home in Pittsburgh, but they expect him to need a few weeks to get into game shape. He has accrued 28 sacks and been voted to the Pro Bowl in each of his three seasons.


The same situation arose past year when then-San Diego Chargers rookie defensive end, Joey Bose, was a long hold out and missed action when the regular season got underway.

The Aaron Donald saga in Los Angeles will carry on into the regular season.

Donald is seeking a deal that would make him the NFL's highest-paid defensive player. However, if the language from the organization is any indication, Los Angeles' most crucial defensive player is in line to receive his mega-deal sooner rather than later.
