The Los Angeles Rams continue to express optimism about coming to terms on a long-term deal with Aaron Donald.

Les Snead told reporters on April 5 that the team has Donald "budgeted in the budget."

Donald is entering the final year of his rookie contract on a fifth-year option.

"He's responding more than he was at this time last year, so that's what I feel good about," Sean McVay said Tuesday of talks.
