Cornerback Marcus Peters may be one of the new offseason additions to the Los Angeles Rams, but that didn't stop him from weighing in on the absence of Aaron Donald from organized team activities.

Multiple media outlets have reported that Donald, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, is seeking a new contract with the Rams. Donald is set to make $6.89 million in the fifth-year option of his rookie contract.

"Pay the man," Peters said, per NFL.com. "... I mean, you win the MVP, man. Come on now."

Donald was the first Rams player to earn AP Defensive Player of the Year honors after he amassed 52 tackles, a team-high 11 sacks, a team-best five forced fumbles, 27 quarterback hits, one fumble recovery and two passes defensed in 14 games last season.

The former University of Pittsburgh standout also was named first-team All-Pro for the third straight year and to the Pro Bowl for the fourth year in a row. Donald has totaled 148 solo tackles and 39 sacks since entering the league in 2014.

Donald figures to be part of an even more imposing unit after Los Angeles added another Pro Bowl defensive tackle in Ndamukong Suh during free agency.
