Sad News: Rams Star player has Retired from All…Read More.

The Rams lost one of their all-time greats this offseason when legendary defensive tackle Aaron Donald retired after a decade-long career in the NFL. Donald, a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, leaves behind a legacy that includes 542 tackles, 111 sacks, 24 forced fumbles, and seven fumble recoveries. His departure creates a significant gap in the Rams’ defense.

To address the void left by Donald’s retirement, the Rams turned to the 2024 NFL Draft. They selected edge rusher Jared Verse in the first round and defensive lineman Braden Fiske in the second round, hoping these players will help fill the production and impact that Donald brought to the team.

However, general manager Les Snead isn’t ready to completely shut the door on Donald returning under the right circumstances.

Weddle announced his retirement in February 2020 and, almost two years later in January 2022, was willing to make a short return to chase a ring. It’s safe to say it was the right decision as the Rams defeated the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI.

There is a difference between Donald and Weddle, however, as Donald has already raised a Vince Lombardi Trophy. Still, it’s tough to imagine Donald passing up the opportunity to add to his trophy case.

Snead believes the toughest part of pulling Donald out of retirement is that he wouldn’t have gone through the season like the rest of his teammates.
