LA Rams Make Aaron Donald the Highest-Paid Defender in NFL History
Donald's six-year deal will reportedly pay him $87 million in guaranteed money.
The reigning AP Defensive Player of the Year won’t be escaping from LA anytime soon.
The Rams agreed to terms on a six-year contract extension with Donald that will keep the star pass-rusher in Los Angeles through the 2024 season and make him the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history.
Terms have yet to officially be released, but it’s believed Donald and the team are finalizing a deal worth $135 million which includes $87 million in guaranteed money.

The deal, which includes a $40 million signing bonus, means Donald will be on the field to face the Oakland Raiders when the Rams open their season on Monday Night Football.
It also means there are a couple of people who may not be returning to work after Labor Day.
