Aaron Donald shines the brightest on the 10-1 Los Angeles Rams.
Since debuting as an NFL player in 2014, Aaron Donald has been nothing short of a beast. Think about it: he won the Defensive Rookie of the Year award by posting 9 sacks, then followed that up with an 11-sack campaign, and a string of All-Pro designations leading into this year. You could argue, he's never once regressed throughout his career. The record for the richest contract in NFL history by a "Defensive Player" was his until it was eclipsed by Khalil Mack this season. Life is undeniably good for Aaron Donald.
After securing his mega-deal in the offseason, Donald celebrated by purchasing what is quite possibly the most ostentatious piece of jewelry in circulation, at least within the NFL. TMZ has obtained visuals of Donald's $250,000 (appraisal) 14 karats diamond-encrusted chain, a small expenditure if you consider the magnitude of the aforementioned $135 million deal he signed in August.
TMZ has learned that Donald's chain took 2 months to complete. Although the chain is being appraised at $250,000 there's a chance he received a coupon discount on the piece, reports indicate it was purchased for an "undisclosed amount."
For what it's worth, Aaron Donald is a special player on a team that could be on the cusp of a dynastic run, if they can keep all their players signed under the NFL salary cap. The Los Angeles Rams currently sit in 1st position in the NFC West with a stellar 10-1 record.
