Ndamukong Suh Would Make Quite The Agent For Aaron Donald, Which Is Quite The Nightmare For The Los Angeles Rams
M. Night Shyamalan, eat your g'damn heart out! Ndamukong Suh causing a stir within the organization that brought him aboard their crew of malcontents and mercenaries to chase a championship isn't what any football fan would consider a surprise, but doing so by proclaiming himself less valuable than a teammate that plays the same position?! That's how you twist a plot tighter than whatever the Rams front office is smoking! Of all the ways in which the 300+ pound mammoth of a man with an extensive history of on-field psychosis could leave those that decided to sign him with their heads placed firmly in their hands, the one you'd least expect is by trying to sway them uncomfortably close to the salary cap out of selflessness!
Make no mistake, if only due to inflation, Aaron Donald is most definitely deserving of a contract that tops the one that paid off his defensive line-mate's insanely profitable prime. The "what's that smell?"-like look shared by just about every football fan upon reading that the Rams prioritized locking up Brandin Cooks, of all people, for 16 million per season was proof positive of that. You follow that up by resetting the entire market for a running back (even one as talented as Todd Gurley), and you certainly don't drive down the price on a dominant defensive disrupter who's in his second straight offseason of impatiently waiting for much more irreplaceable efforts to be fiscally appreciated. To put it simply, Aaron Donald's case was plenty pleaded before his new teammate decided to serve as a character witness.
Still, I'm quite sure that when the Rams' brain trust picked up Ndamukong Suh to further pressure the pocket they weren't referring to the one attached to the ass of their pants. Hell, if anything, the unmistakable presence of a quality replacement should have deterred a holdout, not spoken out in support of it. Again, one man's opinion, no matter how much experience it is backed by, doesn't really stand to strengthen an argument that's considered so obvious. That said, no one should feel totally comfortable lining up across from what could easily prove to be the most destructive duo of defensive tackles in NFL history, whether it be on the other side of the line of scrimmage or the other side of the negotiating table.
