OL Rodger Saffold had his agent tell the Rams Sunday he will be signing with a new team, perhaps as soon as Tuesday. Agent Alan Herman wouldn't reveal to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Saffold's likely destination, but it is believed the Raiders or Buccaneers could be offering as much as $8 million a year. Herman told the Post-Dispatch, "We spoke with (chief operating officer) Kevin Demoff numerous times over the weekend. But we're probably going to move in another direction. Kevin is a good person and a good businessman. He's wonderful to work with in these types of situations. The Rams made a valiant effort. But it's pretty hard to have multiple people making big dollars on the offensive line." The Rams signed tackle Jake Long to a four-year, $34 million contract last season. Herman concluded, "Kevin was very gracious and said he was happy that Rodger had done well for himself." Saffold was the team's left tackle as a rookie after being selected in the second round of the 2010 draft. He suffered several injuries during his final three seasons, and last year played right tackle, right guard and left tackle. The Rams' plan was to have him play guard, but it is expected interested teams will expect him to play tackle. Mon, Mar 10 Sportsxchange
