Rodger Saffold officially re-signs with Rams


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) After failing a physical and having his contract voided with the Raiders, free-agent offensive lineman Rodger Saffold ended up where he started, signing a five-year contract with the Rams Thursday.

The deal will be worth $31.7 million, more than $10 million less than he would have made with the Raiders. His contract eventually voided due to concerns about a shoulder injury that will require surgery at some point. He is still receiving $19.5 million guaranteed from the Rams, who are not concerned about the injury, according to USA Today.

"We have a shoulder specialist who said he's 100% fine," Saffold's agent Alan Herman said. "And we have the Rams, who passed him on his exit physical and then provided a significant amount of guaranteed money to prove they were fine with it."

According to the report, team owner Mark Davis vetoed the deal after finding out Saffold would need the surgery during a physical. Saffold is expected to be ready in time for the start of training camp, which is enough for the Rams to have already signed him to a five-year deal shortly after the Raiders' deal fell through. 


Report: After failed physical, Rodger Saffold to return to St. Louis


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Just minutes after the Raiders announced he failed a physical and would not be signing with them, offensive lineman Rodger Saffold found a familiar home to return to. According to ESPN.com, Saffold will be returning to the Rams on a five-year deal, the terms of which are not yet known. 

The Raiders' deal with Saffold fell apart over concerned about the health of Saffold's shoulder, after he could not pass a physical. The Rams reportedly have no concerns about the injury, however, and will bring Saffold back to where he spent the first four seasons of his career. 

Saffold has struggled with injuries throughout his career, with his rookie season in 2010 representing his lone 16-game season. He has played 31 of a possible 48 games over the last three seasons.
