Rumors swirl of Rams, Aaron Donald closing in on a deal

Aaron Donald and the Los Angeles Rams are reportedly having "increased dialogue" over his new deal, but the talk doesn't matter until the deal gets done, says Mike Florio.

From being in the same zip code/area code/ball park to having increased dialogue, the evidence has been mounting publicly that the Rams and defensive tackle Aaron Donald are closing in on a long-awaited contract extension.

Privately, the evidence of a looming consensus also is beginning to pile up.

Per a league source, chatter is increasing regarding the possibility of the Rams and Donald getting a deal done soon. If it happens, it will mean that the two sides found a way to bridge the gap between how the Rams value Donald, and how Donald values Donald.

Whatever it ends up being -- if it ends up being -- get ready for the possibility of good news for the Rams, and bad news for anyone who will be facing a defense that will feature Donald, Ndamukong Suh, Aqib Talib, and Marcus Peters.
