“Great players in our league lift up the people around them and Aaron has led the way for our team in my time with the Rams,” said head coach Sean McVay. “He is an elite competitor, someone who leads by example in a way that is authentic to him, and an exceptional teammate who inspires everyone around him to be the best version of themselves. As great a player as he is, he is an even better person. He is truly unique and embodies everything that is good about sports. I will forever cherish the memories we created and I will always be grateful for the way he has put everything into this game and into our team. He means a lot to me personally and to my family.”

“There will never be another Aaron Donald,” general manager Les Snead said.
