now it looks like an exten

New Rams cornerback Marcus Peters has an idea: Pay Aaron Donald.

“Hey man , pay the man,” Peters said, via Greg Beacham of the Associated Press. “I mean [expletive]. You win the MVP? Come on now.”

Never mind that Donald didn’t win the MVP. He was the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year after making 11 sacks and forcing five fumbles last season.

Donald, who turns 27 on Wednesday, has not taken part in any voluntary work with the Rams this offseason. He held out of the offseason program, training camp and the preseason in 2017, reporting to the team a day before the Rams’ season opener.

Donald is scheduled to make $6.89 million this season in the final year of his rookie contract.

“Aaron is a vet , man,” the Rams’ other new cornerback, Aqib Talib, said. “He’s going to take care of his own business. What’s his business is his business.”

Broncos linebacker Von Miller currently is the league’s highest-paid defensive player, with a $114.5 million deal that pays him $19.083 million per season. The Rams already have said they expect Donald to surpass Miller’s deal and have expressed optimism at getting something done.

But so far the sides have not reached agreement on an extension.

“It’s kind of where it’s been,” coach Sean McVay said. “We’re in constant dialogue and communication with his representation. It is something that we want to get resolved. As far as a timetable, don’t really have any dates on that. I don’t expect Aaron to be here until we get a resolution to that.”

The Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers are getting closer to a contract extension Corey Linsley Jersey , according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.Rapoport said that the two sides have made "measurable progress," and that there is some optimism that a new contract could get done before the 2018 season begins in September.From Inside Training Camp: Over the last few days, there has been measurable progress for a contract extension for #Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 1, 2018The two-time NFL MVP and Super Bowl 45 champion has two years left on his current contract. Since Rodgers signed a five-year, $110 million extension in 2013, the contracts for starting quarterbacks have only skyrocketed ever since. For example, the San Francisco 49ers gave Jimmy Garoppolo a five-year Dorance Armstrong Jr. Jersey , $137.5 million contract, even though he's made just seven career starts.It's worth noting that Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported two weeks ago that Rodgers and the Packers hadn't made any "meaningful progress." But the idea of Rodgers leaving the team that made him a legend always seemed unimaginable, and now it looks like an extension will be reached.When he's healthy, there is no quarterback as good as Rodgers. The Packers made the postseason every year under Rodgers from 2009-16, which included one Super Bowl championship and a total of three NFC title game appearances. Rodgers and the Packers looked primed for another playoff run in 2017, but he suffered a fractured collarbone injury mid-season, and Green Bay slumped to a 7-9 finish. His value to the team cannot be underestimated , and the Packers would be crazy to not give into his contract demands.Green Bay tried to bolster their Super Bowl chances in the offseason by signing Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham and defensive lineman, Muhammad Wilkerson. If Rodgers can stay healthy, Green Bay will have a legitimate shot at winning Super Bowl 53.Giving Rodgers the long-term extension he's worthy of would only motivate No. 12 even more in getting that second Super Bowl championship.
