Former Los Angeles Rams OG Rodger Saffold will reportedly agree to a 4-year, $44 million contract with the Tennessee Titans. About $22.5 million of the contract is guaranteed, according to NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Saffold is moving on after spending nine seasons with the Rams. Les Snead did mention that Saffold is out of their price range hours earlier. The 9-year veteran is a large part of the Rams’ overall success on the offensive line. The Rams will have to decide on who to replace Saffold.
They could look to last year’s rookie Joseph Noteboom to become the new starting guard. Although, the Rams may be able to consider free agency and the NFL Draft as potential replacement ideas. The Rams have high hopes for Noteboom though, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if they went that route.
Saffold was selected 33rd overall of the 2010 NFL Draft. He actually did leave the Rams for a few day during the 2014 offseason. The Oakland Raiders did attempt to sign him, but Saffold didn’t pass his physical and wound up back with the Rams.
