On Friday news broke that the Los Angeles Rams are making defensive tackle Aaron Donald the richest defender in NFL history.
It’s a well-deserved reward, as Donald is one of the most dominant player at any position in the league. Over the past four years, he’s made the Pro Bowl four times, and the past three years running he’s made First-team All-Pro.
As news spread of Donald’s record-breaking haul, his peers, and others who cover the league, reacted on Twitter.
If anyone deserves it, it’s AD!! Generational player. One of the hardest working guys I’ve played with. https://t.co/mU8IMG1Hte

* NFL defensive player of the year in 2017

The definition of dominance.
