Aaron Donald becomes the highest-paid non-quarterback in NFL history


Aaron Donald isn’t going anywhere, and he’s coming back with a bank vault full of riches. According to NFL Network Insider, the Los Angeles Rams adjusted Donald’s deal to make him the highest-paid non-quarterback in NFL history. The team has subsequently made the announcement. Although this report has yet to be verified, the official documents and math are clear: Donald is, without a doubt, the highest-paid non-quarterback in history. According to Rapoport, no extra years were added to Donald’s deal, which currently guarantees him $65 million over the next two seasons and $95 million through 2024. Donald will earn a total of $40 million more than he did under his prior contract, which had a basic salary of only $9.25 million through the 2022 season. “I’m locking myself back in so I can go get us another ring — why not!” When Donald signed his new deal, he commented. “It gives me the creeps just thinking about it. Let’s get down to business.”
