The Los Angeles Rams have officially exercised the fifth-year option on defensive tackle Aaron Donald, ESPN’s Field Yates reports.
The deal is worth $6.892 million, guaranteed for injury only, and will be fully guaranteed on the first day of the 2018 league year.

NFL teams have until May 3 to make a decision on this option.
The Rams still must make a decision the fifth-year option on offensive lineman Greg Robinson, the second pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
