    What do you think of Roger Saffold as a starting LT?



    If the Rams sign Jake Long, Saffold will likely ask for a trade. He has one year left on his rookie contract, and so will only be making $880,000 in 2013, but wants to be paid like a starting LT in his next contract. He has been playing LT for the Rams, but I am not sure if he is just another Michael Oher who can play LT (albeit not that well), or is he a legit starting LT? Part of me is thinking that if Saffold was such a good LT, then why are the Rams considering signing Jake Long?

    Yes please, he was really good last year and finally starting to get it going on the field.

    I was just going to post this. I wonder what the asking price will be.

    Couldn't we let him play out his rookie deal then look at giving him LT money depending on how he plays?

    Sure, but how much would it cost in draft picks to get him? If it is a 4th round pick, then fine, but if the Ravens have to give up a first or second round pick to get him, then that could be an expensive rental.

    If you are going to make this trade, you gotta trade and sign him to an extension to avert the risk of wasting a pick.

    No way would I give a first or second up for him. MAYBE I'd consider 3rd rounder because of where we're picking, but that's the ABSOLUTE maximum IMO. If he was one or two years into his deal, I'd probably be a little more into it, but giving up a 2nd or first rounder to get one cheap year and then have the real potential of losing him the year after would be terrible value.
