There's nothing positive about Aaron Donald's unsettled contract situation and presumed holdout. He's too important; this summer's too important. But the Rams feel some semblance of comfort for two reasons: Donald's role isn't necessarily changing within the new defense (he'll still be a 3-tech), and they know he will be in shape and all in when he does show up. His teammates revere him and they get it. Robert Quinn said it best: "Aaron has a great heart. He loves playing football, first and foremost. He's just going through a tough little situation right now."
