The Los Angeles Rams have overachieved this offseason, and Ndamukong Suh might become their latest acquisition. But can they have all that AND Aaron Donald?
There are not enough superlatives to describe the Los Angeles Rams this 2018 offseason.
Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib, and the latest name on the radar, Ndamukong Suh, perhaps the one player that absolutely tips the scales and makes the Rams a bonafide would be lock for a serious Super Bowl run.
What super fan wouldn’t salivate at such a possibility?
I’ll also ask at what cost.
Suh is likely a game changer. He’s a free agent that if Talib and Peters only casually captured your attention, well, a guy like Ndamukong absolutely does.
But does that mean Aaron Donald absolutely takes a back seat? I mean, how do you tell the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year “thanks, but no thanks” when it comes to getting a deal done in 2018, because at some point you have to wonder how the Rams have it all?
Maybe General Manager Les Snead has a deal on the back burner to address Camp Donald.
You’d hope so.
You also have to wonder, IF Suh signs with LA, what kind of message does this send Donald?
I mean seriously, how long does this guy have to wait?
Look, I get it.
I’ve written about it.
The Rams have time to get Donald done. I’ve even written that it’s not entirely critical they do before the preseason or the beginning of the 2018 regular season.
But he has to know he will.
Whether Donald offers up a hometown discount is all on him. And you hope Snead has taken the temperature on the situation to know where the team is and where Donald is.
The Rams have gotten so much right this offseason.
I’d hate to imagine this is the one the screw up.
