A video of Aaron Donald training with knives shows just how much of a dominant force the Los Angeles Rams have on the defensive line.
Hopefully, it’s only a matter of time before the Los Angeles Rams lock Aaron Donald up to a hefty new deal to make sure the defensive superstar is taken care of for the long run, and there’s no reason for concern over the possibility of him ending up elsewhere down the road. Without question, Donald has quickly worked his way to being one of the NFL’s most dangerous defensive players over the last four years, and one can only imagine how much the former Pittsburgh star is going to benefit from playing alongside Ndamukong Suh in 2018.
From Donald’s perspective, it’s easy to understand why he’s been feeling some frustration towards the organization over the last two years when looking at how little he’s being paid compared to other top defensive stars in the league. But on a positive note, at least the Rams and Donald’s representatives seem to have held numerous discussions over the last few months, providing hope that it will only be a matter of time before a new deal is in place.
The 19 sacks along with seven forced fumbles over the last two seasons may not seem like the most impressive numbers on paper, but also keep in mind that Donald was able to record these numbers while receiving extra attention from opponents, which is quite impressive. Without question, this is just one of many examples of how much Donald’s hard work pays off, and if any football fan needed additional proof, just take a look at one of the defensive tackle’s training videos below.
That’s right, Donald is so intense about his training, he’s willing to take it to a whole new level by working with knives, which is absolutely insane to think about. While there have been crazy workout videos from professional athletes, this new method of training by Donald seems like a first, and shows once again why he stands out compared to other players in the NFL.
As dangerous as this method of training may seem, keep in mind that Donald and the guy he’s training with most likely wouldn’t be posting a video like this if they didn’t believe he could handle the workout. Just when it seemed like Donald’s work ethic couldn’t hit a new level, this video of him training with knives hits the Internet, leaving football fans amazed once again over how much of a stud he truly is.
