The Titans are bolstering their offensive line.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that former Rams offensive lineman Rodger Saffold intends to sign a four-year, $44 million deal with the Titans. That is a big deal, for one of the best guards in the NFL.

Saffold went to the Rams’ facility today to say his goodbyes, and it appears that the Titans were offering him significantly more than the Rams.

The Rams had an outstanding offensive line last season, and they started the same five players for all 16 regular season games and all three postseason games. This year things will be different in Los Angeles, and in Tennessee, a big piece has been added to the offense.

  1. I really wanted Saffold to sign with the Vikings but all of our cap space went to Anthony Barr.

    I wish Rodger all the luck in the world in Nashville! One of my favorite cities in the world.

  2. 4 years 44 million is a STEAL. Especially after all the bad contracts given out so far.

    This strengthens a good O-Line. If MM can not get it done with this line and a stud running back, he is not “the guy” No more excuses.

    Who’s this “stud” RB you speak of?

    And don’t even try to tell me Henry with his two >100yd rushing games out of 16, that’s 14 games he DIDN’T even break 100yds and in 12 of those games he DIDN’T top 60yds rushing, YEA that’s a real “STUD” there! Reminds me of Ajayi a few years ago, he had 4-200yd games and everyone thought he was going to be great! Most people just notice those big games without ever thinking(as I do) but what about ALL of those below average games? Those are what sticks out like a sore thumb to me, not the couple of great games.

    When a RB only gets a couple of 100yd games out of 16 like Henry did it’s called an “anomaly” = out of the norm. And had it not been for those two games his YPC would have been 3.9, a full yard less per carry!

    I just don’t see Henry being a stud RB, unless he gets a whole lot more consistent!

  4. In fairness Henry was getting like 10-12 touches for the first 10-12 games of the season. Not that he was great, but it was clear he was the better option than Lewis to get more touches out of the backfield. He definitely has the potential to be stud when he runs “angry” but he doesn’t always do that. Hope he does this year. And no, our o line was not good last year. It was actually bad. Lewan is a stud & Kelly played wel but everyone else underperformed. Hoping this & Conklin being healthy all offseason helps fix that.
