Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald reported to the first day of mandatory minicamp Tuesday after staying away from voluntary OTAs while he negotiated a long-term contract, reports NFL Network’s Steve Wyche.

Donald did individual work off to the side of regular practice, according to NFL Network’s Omar Ruiz. Whether he’ll take part in team drills and scrimmages is unclear.

General manager Les Snead confirmed on May 22 that Donald and the team were in serious stages of negotiation.

Donald has two years left on his current contract but is expected to become the highest-paid defensive tackle in the league on his next deal – and possibly the highest-paid defensive player overall.

The 25-year-old has made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons and earned First-Team All-Pro honors the past two years.
