Aaron Donald is getting paid. Donald has been in the midst of a holdout this summer, as he’s entering the final year of his rookie deal and wanted to make more than the $6.89 million he’s slated to receive this year. Donald’s wish came true on Friday afternoon, when ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the two sides had struck a deal to make Donald the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history. Donald reportedly agreed to a six-year deal worth $135 million, with $87 million of that in guaranteed money. – TO
