I know this isn’t the contract news you hoped you would be hearing, but it is important nonetheless. It looks like negotiations between the Rams and second round pick Rodger Saffold are heating up. According to beat writer Brian Stull, negotiations are expected to really get going over the next few days, and it sounds like the Rams have an idea of what it will take to get him in. There has only been one second round pick signed as of yet, so this is also nothing to be worried about. It looks like it might take about $6 mil a year to get something done, so expect it to happen soon. This is no Sam Bradford signing, but it is pretty important for the team. After the trade of Alex Barron, there is no doubt that we need some depth on the line, and many people think Saffold could be ready to contribute right away. As long as this gets done and he is in camp on time, I fully expect him to be given a chance to win a starting spot. I will keep everyone update on this and on the Bradford negotiations, so stay tuned.
