Donald is the reigning NFL defensive player of the year. 

Donald, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Rams back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $10.136 million rookie contract when the Rams picked up his fifth-year team option for the 2018 season, which cost them around $6.892 million.

Los Angeles signed Donald to a record six-year, $135 million extension back in August of 2019, which included a $40 million signing bonus and $86,892,000 guaranteed.

In 2020, Donald appeared in all 16 games for the Rams, recording 45 tackles, 13.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, and one pass deflection.
