Aaron Donald sent Rams retirement documents: Fan reaction

0

Before Super Bowl LVI, there were rumors that Los Angeles Rams quarterback Aaron Donald was thinking about retiring. Apparently, these rumors were true.

On Thursday, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Donald had previously written a letter to the Rams expressing his desire to resign. The letter was never filed and sent to the NFL, despite his desire that it be sent.

Before he could resign, a behind-the-scenes clash between the Rams and Donald ensued. This culminated in a massive extension of Donald’s contract in exchange for his return to the team.

It is quite difficult to refuse a $40 million increase over three years without the need to add additional years to the contract. As a result, Donald returned to the Rams in the foreseeable future.

NFL fans can hardly believe that this story is real. Some fans would like Donald to retire so that he would stop beating their teams, while Rams fans will now cherish his time spent with them even more:

Aaron Donald is arguably the most influential force the NFL has seen since Bruce Smith and the late great Reggie White.

He has been a professional bowler in every season since his rookie year, has been All-Pro seven times in a row, has 98 sacks to his credit, and has won the “Best Defender of the Year” award three times.

The Rams would like him to play at such a high level for many years.

It seems that Donald was not so eager for this. But money talks.
