    My mind works that way also, but has a slight twist.

    What are the chances the RAMS "worked a deal" with the Raiders to terminate the contract, so the RAMS could bring him back for their original offer? A Draft day trade could answer that question.

    I also think that guard has him less exposed and on an island, so I hope that also works in his favor healthwise.

    Good signing, excellent depth!

    Remember the good old days?

    The details of Ringo's trade have been the subject of speculation. For years it was said that following the 1963 season, Ringo showed up in Lombardi's office, with an agent in tow, looking to negotiate a raise. Lombardi, according to this account, was so angered that he excused himself for five minutes only to return and announce that he had traded Ringo to the Eagles.

    Definitely makes me feel a little better about our offensive line issues. I'm really getting tired of the excuses, put Sam in the best position possible so that we know we aren't wasting our time with him. Not to mention, I'd also like to think it gives us an opportunity to draft Sammy Watkins, who could truly be a #1. I know it's unlikely, but we'll see.

    Saffold, just stay healthy. That's all we ask.

    I think he did block well, as a RG. RT? Not so much. LT? Better than most. A healthy Saffold @ RG makes the OL better. Some say he can also make the left side (LG) more solid. We will just have to see what happens this coming season.
