Saffold — who is going into the final year of his rookie deal — is none too pleased about being shifted from the blindside. "We’ve been trying to reach Rodger, and he’s not returning calls right now," Fisher said. "But we’ll get things settled, and Rodger’s a big part of our future and a big part of our plans on offense." It sounds like a holdout is brewing, but Saffold has yet to request a trade. The Rams' former left tackle is a candidate for a contract extension, but only if he's willing to take right-tackle money. It could be a while before he's amenable to that. Saffold could be put on the block between now and the draft.
Definitely worth a 3rd or 4th rounder. Solid young player on the blindside. Actually better than Bushrod. Anyone have PFF stats? Discuss!
