'I'm just in the moment right now'

Is Aaron Donald hanging up his cleats?

Well, we still don’t know.

Moments before the start of Sunday’s Super Bowl LVI, Rodney Harrison reported that Donald might retire if the Rams beat the Bengals at SoFi Stadium. Los Angeles went on to earn a 23-20 win over Cincinnati, with Donald making key plays on the Bengals’ final two offensive plays.

Moments after Donald won his first Lombardi Trophy, NBC’s Michelle Tafoya asked the 30-year-old about his potential retirement.

“I’m just in the moment right now,” Donald said. “I’m in the moment. I’m enjoying this right now with these guys. When my kids come on the field, this was a promise I made to my daughter when she was five. So, we gonna play in the confetti here for a minute. I’m just gonna live in the moment.”

Donald had four tackles and two sacks in the Super Bowl victory.

He is a seven-time All-Pro, eight-time Pro Bowler and three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year winner.
