This whole matter is like a "tempest in a teapot" that has been a media issue after an initial comment by the agent. Is the agent entitled to make a remark, of course. He's paid to advocate for his client. But at the end of the day, Jeff Fisher will decide who plays where on this team based on what is in the TEAM'S best interest. If this were in-season, I highly suspect we wouldn't be having this lengthy discussion. Saffold has done nothing to inflame the matter by holding out or making inflammatory comments. as in all sports, its about competition and if Rodger thinks he deserves to be playing LT, then let him prove he's deserving in practice and on the field.
I'm sure it's about money. LTs generally command more than RTs, so for Saffold (in a contract year) it could mean a loss of millions of dollars.
I'm sure he'll give his all once he's on the field, but he's got to be thinking "If I play well at RT, teams may want to sign me as a RT instead of a LT."
