Potential fallout in event Rams sign Jake Long as left tackle: Incumbent LT Rodger Saffold likely will ask for trade.

Safford is entering the final year of his contract this season and appears to be unwilling to move to right tackle, as this could have a negative impact on his market value.
St Louis is reportedly taking things slow in regards to pursuing an agreement with Long. He’s set to take a physical today, which could ultimately determine if he’s even an option for them. Clearly, this is hypothetical situation that involves a number of things coming together, but the Rams do have interest in Long, so this is at least something to consider.
