    Wow, interested to see the terms of that deal.

    *DOES HAPPY DANCE*

    Now THAT is lucky. Maybe both sides will see the value of sticking together now.

    Wow, that's a pretty insane turn around. Also I'll bet that was a semi-awkward phone call between Saffold's agent and the rams.

    I'd be interested in the contract details. I'll bet it's only 5 years long for cap purposes, and is meant to make sure the Rams release or re-sign him in a couple of years.

    From Jim Thomas...

    "Rams deal with Saffold should be done in about an hour to return to Rams after Oakland announces his failed phyaical."

    If it's anywhere near the money Oakland offered him I might start crying.

    On one hand, I'm always happy with fewer holes on the OL.

    On the other hand, I'm anxious to see the terms of this contract, and another team failing Saffold on his physical (even if it's the Raiders) doesn't leave me any more optimistic about his health going forward.

    We shall see.

    This offseason just got a whole lot better for the Rams, when healthy Saffold is one of the top OG's in the NFL… the question is how much his contract is going to set us back

    On the plus, at least we didn't let one OL walk to sign another only to fail him on his physical.
