Saffold, 30, is now among the six highest-paid guards in the NFL after a tremendous nine-year career with the Rams.
While he didn’t earn a single Pro Bowl appearance during that span, the veteran acted as a consistent force along the Rams’ offensive line. He started 111 of the 114 games in which he played with the Rams during that span.
Saffold has been a borderline All-Pro performer each of the past two seasons. He graded out as a top-three guard according to Pro Football Focus metrics in 2018. Huge get for the Titans.
