Rams General Manager Les Snead said last month that the team is trying to craft “a win-win solution” for defensive tackle Aaron Donald on the contract front and that work continues with the team’s offseason program getting underway.

Head coach Sean McVay told reporters on Tuesday that there has been “good dialogue” with Donald about a new deal. Donald is signed through 2024, but has outplayed his current deal and his mention of possible retirement ahead of the Super Bowl helped create some urgency to get things rolling.

McVay used the same description for talks with wide receiver Cooper Kupp.

“Those are things that are still at the forefront of our thoughts,” McVay said, via Stu Jackson of the team’s website.

Kupp is signed through 2023, but an exploding market for top receivers and the prospect of the bar going up even higher with players like A.J. Brown, Terry McLaurin, DK Metcalf, and Deebo Samuel set for extensions likely pushed that further into the immediate plans.

  1. Simply give Donald & Kupp a list of teammates and ask them to choose which ones should be asked to take salary reductions or which ones should be cut.
    This way those guys will feel respected because they’re being included in the process. You got to be creative to keep your superstars happy.

  2. LOL

    Run the audits on their financials now. You want to talk about 2 separate sets of financials in Washington, go out to LA and check theirs, then stop by Kansas City and Tampa, too, while you’re at it.
