Could it be?

There’s no doubt about it… Aaron Donald is the most dominant defensive tackle in the NFL. Just an absolute beast of man, the guy just gets after the quarterback.

And… in the prime of his career, he might be… retiring?

Prior to kickoff this evening, former NFL safety Rodney Harrison and Michele Tafoya of NBC reported that Aaron Donald would be considering retirement if the Los Angeles Rams were able to take home the Lombardi Trophy tonight.

“He’s big on legacy. He doesn’t want to be known as a defender that accomplished so many individual things and never won a Super Bowl.

But he also told me this: If he wins a Super Bowl, there’s a strong possibility he could walk away from the game and retire.”

And win the Super Bowl, they did.

Thanks to a game-ending sack from number 99 himself.

Donald is a three-time Defensive Player of the Year, has been named to eight Pro Bowls rosters, awards seven NFL All-Pros, has 98 career sacks, and all-decade honors for the 2010s… he’s arguably one of the best to ever strap on a helmet at his position.

However after the game, Aaron said that he just wants to live in the moment right now and he’ll make that decision at another time.

“I’m in the moment.. I’m just gonna enjoy this with these guys.

My kids come on the field… this is a promise I made to her when she was 5. We’re going to play in the confetti for a minute and just live in the moment.”
