Aaron Donald Reports to Rams

Donald reportedly wants to be the NFL's highest-paid defensive player, surpassing Denver Broncos outside linebacker and Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller.

According to ESPN and Adam Schefter, sources say he's reported to the team, he's taking his physical, but has also not received a new contract. Get the app and get the game. Coach Sean McVay ruled him out for the opener Friday. That led Donald to stay home when his teammates reported to training camp in late July, and Donald held out for six weeks.

Though the team and Donald's representation have not yet come to terms on a contract extension, both sides will continue to work to reach a solution.

Donald will be on the active roster Sunday, and the Rams are seeking a roster exemption.

Donald has recorded 28.0 sacks in his first three seasons.

By reporting Saturday, Donald avoids losing regular season game checks. He was the AP's defensive rookie of the year as a first-round pick in St. Louis in 2014, and the 6-foot dynamo has only improved.

Donald has not been with Rams since minicamp. They can include him on the 53-man roster - he's now on the did not report list - or they can ask for a roster exemption, similar to the one the Steelers got with Le'Veon Bell. Currently, he's scheduled to make just $1.802 million, a bargain for the Rams but a pittance for a player of Donald's caliber.
