That LA Rams had an incredible showing at the Super Bowl last season and much credit for their success goes to Aaron Donald, who was absolutely relentless not just in the closing moments but throughout the tournament. When someone adds so much value to your team, it’s obvious you want them on your side.
There were reports Donald will retire after the Super Bowl and the Rams were keen to force him to stay. In fact, prior to the Super Bowl, Rodney Harrison openly claimed that Aaron told him he would consider retiring if he ended up winning the coveted title.

“I want to continue building my legacy with him”: Aaron Donald on Sean McVay
In the end, as we all know, he won the title, but no one wanted him to stop so soon. Thankfully, Aaron agreed to sign a contract with the Rams a while back. He received a massive raise and became the highest-paid non-QB in league history. By the 2024 season, he is expected to have won a total of $95 million.
In a recent interaction with NFL Network’s Andrew Siciliano and Maurice Jones-Drew, Donald spoke about head coach Sean McVay’s role in keeping him in the unit. “Not at all. Not at all,said Donald when asked if he would have returned had McVay retired for a career in broadcasting.
“If Sean isn’t here, I told Sean when he got here. We came up with some ideas early on and I first said to him that as long as he’s the head coach here I want to continue building my legacy with him. As long as he’s here and I have the ability to still play at a high level, I’ll be here. When he’s gone and all is said and done, I’ll probably hang it up too‘ said Donald.
“It will always be motivation to do whatever it takes to come back‘ said Donald. “That’s the ultimate goal. That’s what you work for. If you’re grinding and working out here right now, keep that in the back of your mind. To try to do whatever it takes to have a great season and try to be the last team standing,” he added.
Undoubtedly, Donald played a super big part in his team’s success last season and his presence is very important for the Rams if they need to win the title for the second year in a row.
