Breaking news for the NFL world… Arguably the best defensive player of his generation, Aaron Donald,– is retiring.

The Los Angeles superstar just announced on his X page that he is hanging up his cleats after playing for the Rams for ten seasons.

In his announcement post, the 32-year-old thanked the Los Angeles organization and its supporters, saying he now hopes to be able to spend more time with his wife and children without worrying about football taking over his life.

“Throughout my career,” Aaron said, “I have given my everything to football both mentally and physically — 365 days a year was dedicated to becoming the best possible player I could be.”

“I respected this game like no other and I’m blessed to be able to conclude my NFL career with the same franchise that drafted me.”

Donald was picked by the Rams in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, AD quickly rose to the top of the squad. He started 12 games in his rookie campaign and was named Defensive Rookie of the Year.

AD went on to play in every season that he was selected to the Pro Bowl and earned eight All-Pro selections in all. In addition, he was named Defensive Player of the Year three times.

Many didn’t think he would retire this offseason because he was still performing at a very high caliber. Nevertheless, after the 2022 season, when it was disclosed that he had previously only intended to play eight seasons, there have been whispers that he could return his helmet.

Regarding his career, the one unanswered question is not whether he will win a gold jacket in five years, but whether or not he’ll be remembered as the greatest defensive tackle ever.

Congrats, Aaron Donald
