Aaron Donald Ends Holdout with Rams; DE Reportedly Won't Play Week 1

Rams coach Sean Mc Vay poor attendance

Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald, absent since the start of training camp because of a contract dispute, ended his holdout and reported Saturday, though without a new deal.

Donald passed his physical and was added to the active roster, but he will not play on Sunday.

Outgoing Vanity Fair Editor Made a Wall of Trump's Hate Tweets
Made clear by Trump's negative tweets toward the editor, Trump and Carter have a long, combative history with one another. Trump, in turn, has not minced words in his criticism of Vanity Fair and Carter.

The late arrival means that Donald will not be on the field when the Rams begin the season Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. His absence won't change the Rams' game plan going into their season opener.

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. By arriving before the opener, he ensured that he would earn a weekly game check of almost $106,000.

You basically are going to have free reign from then on to work on any project you want - especially if the movie is a hit. It only took Lucasfilm, owned by Disney, a day to find their replacement - double Oscar victor Ron Howard .

Donald is widely regarded as one of the top defensive players in the league through his first three campaigns as he leads all defensive tackles with 28.0 sacks and 57.0 tackles for loss over that span. However, his holdout will keep him out of at least one regular season game.

So ends Donald's almost three-month-long hiatus. He is believed to be eyeing a new deal that would make him the highest paid defensive player in the NFL. 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.

The game debuted in 2008 and has been played every season since with two such matchups being played in 2012, '14 and '17. The Tuscaloosa News previous reported that UA was in negotiations to play Miami in its 2021 season opener .

It might be a bit of a transition for Donald, who missed a month of practice and is moving to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips' preferred 3-4 scheme.
