NFL Rumors: Rodger Saffold fails physical, won't sign with Oakland Raiders

On the opening day of free agency on Tuesday, the Oakland Raiders agreed to a five-year, $42.5 million deal with former St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Rodger Saffold.

Although many questioned why the Raiders didn’t attempt to re-sign some of their own players, like defensive end Lamarr Houston, who signed with the Chicago Bears, or why they gave Saffold such a monster deal, it at least showed they were trying to improve and willing to spend money to get better.

However, it looks as though Saffold won’t be a member of the Raiders after all.


Saffold now once again will become a free agent and won’t get anywhere near the type of deal he signed with the Raiders on Tuesday.
