St. Louis' effort to re-sign Saffold before free agency opens March 11 likely will "go right down to the wire," the paper said. Several teams are interested in Saffold, who can play tackle or guard.
The Rams view Saffold as a guard, although he's mostly played tackle in his career. Tagging him would be way too expensive, the report said. The team has no other high-profile free agents.
“I think ultimately, he’s going to be an outstanding guard in this league,” coach Jeff Fisher said. “That doesn’t mean to say that he couldn’t play either tackle, because this year, he did. He played some really good football at the tackle spot.”
Saffold just completed his four-year rookie deal.
St. Louis wants to retain Saffold, but the question is at what cost. Injuries limited him to 22 games the past two seasons.
