Aaron Donald to miss season opener
Another defensive lineman who doesn't seem willing to take the field anytime soon, Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald will not play in their season opener against the Indianapolis Colts this weekend due to his holdout, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Donald has two years and $8.7 million left on his rookie deal, but he is seeking a new contract that would make him one of the highest paid defensive players in the league. The two sides reportedly remain far apart on a deal.

Donald, who Pro Football Focus ranked as the best player in the entire league last year, had 47 tackles with eight sacks and two forced fumbles in 2016.

Sebastian Janikowski takes paycut for Raiders
Kicker Sebastian Janikowski was also in a contract dispute with the Oakland Raiders, but has agreed to take a $1 million pay cut, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Janikowski's deal would have become fully guaranteed on Saturday, and the Raiders contemplated cutting him. However, Oakland hadn't signed another kicker and kept the longest-tenured player on the team around. His $3 million is fully guaranteed.

Last year, Janikowski went 29/35 on field goals last season and missed two extra points.
