Aaron Donald ends holdout, reports to Rams without new deal

Aaron Donald ends holdout, reports to Rams without new deal

The Rams also received a short-term exemption from the National Football League that allowed them to add Donald as a 54th player, and prevented them from having to cut a player in order to get to the National Football League active-roster maximum of 53.

Donald will not play in Sunday's test against the Indianapolis Colts, but has been working out on the east coast and "could be up to speed soon", NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Get the app and get the game.

The Rams added Donald to their active roster Saturday and will pay him in full this week.

Donald remains under contract through the 2018 season, but is seeking a new deal.

However, it appears it has come to an end after the 26-year-old has reported to the team's practice facility on Saturday where he passed a physical without a new deal in place.

"He is not ruled out, but right now he's not here", Rams coach Sean McVay told TheRams.com. He was named 2014 AP Defensive Rookie of the year, and has been a Pro Bowl selection in each of his first three years.

Donald missed the Rams' entire training camp under new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who is eager to plug Donald into the center of his 3-4 defense. Donald was looking to leverage his holdout into a new contract that would make him one of the highest paid players in the NFL.

It's reasonable to expect Donald to be back on the field in Week 2 against the Redskins, though ProFootballTalk suggests it could be a few weeks before he plays.
