AD wants money. This isn't about idealism or altruism. He's not about to sit out and turn down about $13mil for a season.
As for the Rams; I just don't know if they have the guts to play hardball if he says he won't play and he stays home. They need to stick to their guns and let him stew. But, this is a business and the Rams might decide they are better off trading him. I truly doubt it. Players scream all the time that they won't play under the tag......and they always do. Even if he sits out a third of the season (and loses a third of his paychecks), he'd be there for the important part of the season and the playoffs.

The Rams can't lose on this deal until the 2021 season when it wouldn't make sense to Tag AD for a 3rd time (which they could if they wanted to). And it's one reason the players union is ready to strike. They don't like the CBA rookie contract structure that can be followed up with Tag years.

The DT tag is a lowball compared to his market value.

IMO he would demand a trade if tagged, and star players who demand trades get traded.

There's no cheap way to keep Donald and even trying to do it is just bad management.
