Aaron Donald's future with the Los Angeles Rams had become unclear following comments from the star defenseman that he'd consider retiring if he wasn't satisfied with his contract. Well, Rams fans need not worry anymore, as Donald and the franchise have agreed to a massive new three-year contract extension that will see the star defensive lineman become one of football's biggest earners. According to Ian Rapoport, Donald is due to get an increase of $40 million over the next three seasons, and is now penciled in to make $65 million in guaranteed money in that span, and will earn as much as $95 million over the course of his new extension.

Donald has re-upped with the Rams on a two-year extension that will make him the single-highest paid non-quarterback in NFL history, with his annual salary eclipsing the $30 million mark. With Donald reportedly mulling retirement, the Rams stepped up to the plate and delivered him a contract that was simply too good to pass up.

Now, No. 99 will be back in LA and hoping to run it back and win another Super Bowl with the team after their stunning championship run last season. He'll be with the team for another three seasons, with his new mammoth contract (fitting for a mammoth individual) set to run through the 2024 season.

One of the greatest defensive players of all time, Donald is finally being compensated as such. After achieving his ultimate goal of winning a Super Bowl in LA, the 31-year-old is being rewarded handsomely for his services, and can hopefully contribute to another title run for the Rams before the expiration of his latest record-setting contract.
