Rams Rumors: Aaron Donald Fine With Potential Ndamukong Suh Signing

The Los Angeles Rams are currently pegged as one of the three finalists to sign All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. The team could possibly be adding a premier talent up the middle to further strengthen their already promising defensive unit.

The heightened pursuit of Suh has raised some questions in terms of how he would fit into the fold of things, especially with him playing the same position as reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald. According to Alden Gonzalez of ESPN, Donald is said to be fine with the 31-year-old joining the mix if he desires to do so.

Although the Rams are aggressive in their pursuit of bringing aboard Suh, their top priority is still to re-sign Donald to a lucrative long-term deal. The team has made that quite clear this offseason that they plan to ink their star defensive tackle to an extension at some point over the next few months as they revealed there is a timeline in place to get that done.

This will likely require the team to commit to paying him as the highest-paid defensive player in the league that could surpass Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller’s six-year $114.1 million deal. This is an honor that, up to this point in his career, he has put himself in position to earn. Through his first four seasons, he has earned four Pro Bowl selections to go with three straight First-Team All-Pro nods and NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

The Rams may potentially bring aboard another player that could double up at the same position. The team has pitched to Suh that both he, Donald, and Michael Brockers can work effectively together on the field.

If Suh does wind up choosing to join Los Angeles, there seems to be a defined role for him on their defensive front. With the five-time Pro Bowler heading home Portland, Oregon to weigh his options, the Rams will soon know if they will have another major addition to their defense.
