Here are three reasons why Los Angeles Rams fans shouldn’t panic over Aaron Donald skipping OTAs.

With OTAs officially getting underway for the Los Angeles Rams, one of the main topics of discussion once again is the absence of Aaron Donald, who is still in search of that new deal from the organization. Dating back to last offseason, the former Pittsburgh star has made it clear that he’s not going to stop fighting until a new deal is reached, and rightfully so when looking at the impact made by Donald over the years.

In fact, the argument can even be made that Donald deserves to be the league’s highest paid defensive player since he’s a rare kind of talent, and has proven to be an absolute nightmare for opponents.

The Rams realized just how lucky they were last season to see Donald eventually give in before Week 1 after holding out all of training camp and preseason, but seeing this situation continue to play out with June right around the corner may seem a little concerning. If anything, most fans assumed this whole situation would have already been addressed by now when looking at how busy Los Angeles has been throughout the offseason with moves being made left and right.

So as a way to help Rams fans feel better about the Donald contract situation, here are three reasons not to panic over the team’s defensive superstar being absent from the start of OTAs on Monday.
