Ndamukong Suh once signed the most expensive contract for a defensive player, a $ 114 million six-year contract with a guaranteed $ 60 million.
The defensive tackle lasted only three seasons in Miami before being cut this off season. Suh then signed for a year, $ 14 million with the Los Angeles Rams in this offseason, to play alongside defensive player of the year Aaron Donald.
"He deserves more than what I've got," said Suh Jarrett Bell of USA TODAY Sports regarding Donald's contract. "It is only right that he continues to play at a high level and proves that."
At this point, Donald keeps out of his second, straight training camp to get a new contract. The 27-year-old is said to earn $ 6.892 million in the fifth year of his rookie contract, less than a third of his value.
According to most reports, Donald is not trying to beat Suh's record contract or Von Miller's contract, which came with an average of $ 19,016 million a year with $ 70 million guarantees. Donald is looking closer to the QB money.
General Manager Les Snead has further claimed that the sites are working towards a deal and he does not care about the missed time at the camp.
"You want to have Aaron here, but what you know about Aaron is that he'll be in shape when he's here," Snead told Bell.
The Rams have six weeks to open the season in the Black Hole against the Raiders to close the gap with the NFL's best defender.
