Les Snead on Wednesday gave an update on the Los Angeles Rams\' contract talks with holdout Aaron Donald and said the team and its star defensive tackle are in the same \"ZIP code\" in negotiations.
\"We\'re in the same ZIP code, area code, ballpark,\" he told a group of reporters at the team\'s hotel in Baltimore, where the Rams will play the Ravens on Thursday in a preseason game.
Asked for clarification on the meaning of \"ZIP code\" in the Donald talks, Snead said, \"I think we all know what that means. ZIP code usually means you\'re close, but you still haven\'t agreed.\"
Donald did not report to the team by Tuesday\'s deadline to receive credit for an accrued season, meaning he will not be an unrestricted free agent if he plays out this season without a new deal.
