- Rapoport adds that Saffold is being looked at as more of a guard, rather than as a tackle.
Saffold, 25, appeared in 12 games for the Rams this season and rated as the No. 18 guard in the league, according to Pro Football Focus.
We have Saffold listed as the No. 35 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
Jim Thomas confirms that the Rams will meet with free agent OL Rodger Saffold’s agent at the Combine on Saturday to discuss new contract.
- Mike Jurecki expects Saffold to be “on the Cardinals’ radar” if he hits the open market along with LT Branden Albert.
Pauline adds that the two sides had previously broached the topic of a contract extension last month.
Rams GM Les Snead told reporters last month that they would like to re-sign Saffold. Although, he may prefer to test the market and look for an opportunity to play left tackle again after the Rams moved him to guard following the addition of Jake Long last year.
