Aaron Donald ends holdout, reports to Rams without new deal

Aaron Donald ends holdout, reports to Rams without new deal

Donald's representatives and the Rams will continue to work towards reaching a new deal, the team reported on their website Saturday.

While he has reported, Donald will not play against the Colts on Sunday.

However, Donald would like a long-term contract to reflect his consistent dominance.

It is expected that the company will launch iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and the anniversary edition iPhone 8 at the event. "Let's meet at our place" is the greeting on Apple's invite to its fall event, which lands on September 12 this year.

Had Donald's holdout continued into the regular season, his absence would have cost him something like $106,000 a week, a not-insignificant amount of money for a guy whose base salary is $1.8 million.

Donald stayed away from the Rams starting in May, holding out through offseason team activities, training camp and the entire preseason while attempting to get a lucrative new contract. Playing this season under his rookie contract is a fairly enormous risk, given that kind of earning potential. The defensive star is one of the best players in the National Football League but a contract dispute with his team.

The 2014 Defensive Rookie of the Year is wrecking ball along Los Angeles' defensive front, recording a whopping 163 tackles, 35 tackles for a loss, 28 sacks, and four forced fumbles in just three seasons. By reporting this week, he avoided any chance of preseason injury, and he also won't miss any game checks from the Rams, who appear determined to stay on Donald's good side by not fining him or taking any other punitive actions. The Rams have converted to a new defensive scheme under Wade Phillips.
