Titans to Sign Rodger Saffold

Recommended Posts

Somebody said he ran a 4.67. Yeah he did, his shuttle. His 40 time was well over 5.00. 

 

He was a good enough tackle prospect to be a 2nd rd draft pick and he will turn 31 in June so he has about 3 prime years left. 

 

Definitely an upgrade over what we have. 

 

Love the way Lewan is trying to help us get a good player.

Good player.  JRob shouldn't be giving up double digits for him.  Thing is this year is all about going for the glory and giving Mary every chance possible.  I still don't get the issue they have with Spain.  I'd want to have Spain at LG and Saffold at RG and tell Kline not to let the door hit him on the way out.  One of the reasons the wildcat with Henry is almost unstoppable is because they pull Spain and Henry follows him.  That is bad ass, ass kicking stuff.  Seems like Vrabel isn't into that.  He is more of a "let Lewis get his 20 carries" kind of guy.  Maybe that will change and signing Saffold is a step in that direction.  Still not sure what the issue with Spain is. 

 

Justafan was the guy spouting Saffold's 40 time.  Actually Quinton Spain weighed in at 332 pounds and ran a 5.0.  Benched 29 times with a 30 inch vertical.  He is as athletic as Saffold.  Not saying he is a better player but similar athleticism.

I could see Spain coming on a cheap deal.  I think last year we gave him the lowest tender and no one wanted him then, market probably didn't change much.

Talking with a big Browns fan and told him if Spain doesn't sign with the Titans some team will get a solid player for cheap as a starting OG.  You would think there was more teams interested.  He is actually pretty good in pass protection ranking higher than Saffold in that category.

Spain got caught in a numbers game is all, he has been more consistent then Kline but Kline got his deal first and would be more expensive to replace.
