Los Angeles Rams star defensive end Aaron Donald has no plans to end his holdout and looks prepared to become a restricted free agent next year Cheap Taven Bryan Jersey , according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.Even though Aaron Donald would have to report to Rams鈥?camp by Tuesday to make sure this counts as an accrued season and he wouldn鈥檛 be a restricted free agent next off-season, he has no plans to rejoin the team, per sources. He will not be there Tuesday, nor anytime soon.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 6, 2018This doesn't bode well for a team that won the NFC West with an 11-5 record Roquan Smith Bears Jersey , thanks in large part to the domination of Donald. He was ranked as the best player in the league last season by Pro Football Focus, generating an impressive 94.4 rating. Donald ranked as the second best player by PFF in 2016, garnering a 95.6 grade.Donald's situation was explained thoroughly by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. Though Donald is entering his fifth season in the NFL, the CBA outlines聽"any player under contract who doesn鈥檛 report to camp by the 30th day before the start of the regular season does not acquire a year of credit toward free agency."Since Donald held out last season, he lost a year of credit Leighton Vander Esch Jersey , and it sounds like he's doing so again. Holding out is a major risk for Donald, who would surely land a contract of over $100 million if he hit free agency, but he's only pushing back that opportunity by another year. It's an ugly situation with perhaps no resolution in sight, unless Rams GM Les Snead gives into Donald's demands. Though he did a fine job in landing more Pro Bowl talent this offseason, Snead surely knows there's no replacing a player of Donald's caliber.The Rams signed star defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh to a one-year deal in free agency Andy Dalton Jersey , and he and Donald were to form the next great pass-rushing duo. The Rams need Donald if they're to compete for the Super Bowl next season, so the fans can only hope the matter is resolved soon enough. Former NFL player and general manager Matt Millen says he is being treated for a rare disease that has robbed his heart of most of its normal function.
The 60-year-old Millen told the Morning Call in Allentown, Pennsylvania, he has been diagnosed with amyloidosis, a life-threatening illness that may force Millen to seek a heart transplant. Millen has been receiving chemotherapy once a week to treat a condition that his left his heart functioning at just 30 percent.
Millen played 12 seasons as a linebacker in the NFL for the Raiders Cheap Shaquem Griffin Jersey , 49ers and Redskins – and won four Super Bowl rings.
He later served as Detroit’s general manager and has also spent three decades as a broadcaster. Millen told the Morning Call that he plans to return to the booth in the fall.
