Rams’ Aaron Donald Adds To Legacy With 100th Career Sack

Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald added another accolade to his legacy, notching his 100th career sack with a takedown of Cardinals QB Kyler Murray. 

Donald is only the seventh active player to reach the 100-sack milestone, joining six players all drafted multiple years before him. The three-time Defensive Player of the Year is coming off five consecutive seasons with double-digit sacks despite primarily playing as an interior defensive lineman. 

Donald came close to retiring after only eight seasons this past offseason, even going as far as submitting a retirement letter to the Rams, but the two sides agreed to a revised contract. Donald revealed in August that he plans to play at least two more seasons, citing the new contract. 

Donald has won three Defensive Player of the Year awards, just like Lawrence Taylor, who had 142 sacks.
