After winning Super Bowl LVI, three-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald stated the terms that will make him return to the Los Angeles Rams.
Talks about his retirement were gaining ground because he finally won the award that evaded him throughout his career.
However, the All-Pro defensive tackle made it clear that he will return if they bring everyone back.
That would be a tall order given the price tags of the elite unit they assembled to win the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Ultimately, Von Miller joined the Buffalo Bills while Odell Beckham Jr. remains unsigned, possibly because of a rumored return to the Cleveland Browns.
But while general manager Les Snead will not be able to have everyone on the same field for an encore, Rams fans need not worry about Donald’s status anymore based on this tweet by Sunday Night Football on NBC.

The tweet reads, “Aaron Donald is ready to run it back. @RamsNFL head coach Sean McVay confirmed during his Tuesday press conference that Donald plans to play in 2022.”
If that’s the case, the Rams have a strong shot of repeating as world champions.
Donald will once again lead a defensive crew that remains scary even without Miller.
Aside from Donald, they still have Leonard Floyd and Jalen Ramsey.
Rams Brought Out The Big Bucks
The former Pitt Panther has three years left in the six-year, $135 million deal he signed in 2018.
However, the Rams are letting the money flow in hopes of winning more titles.
They signed quarterback Matthew Stafford to a three-year, $129 million extension.
Likewise, they brought in wide receiver Allen Robinson from the Chicago Bears on a three-year, $46.5 million deal.
