Twitter Tuesday: Rodger Saffold lifts weights – lots of them

Put up 440 today with ease it's gonna be an exciting season #RamsNation — Rodger Saffold (@Rodger_Saffold) April 15, 2014 Holy crap. Assuming the newly re-signed guard is talking about the bench press, that’s a pretty sizable amount of pounds.

The St. Louis Rams need to scout these top offensive tackles closely

Now that Rodger Saffold appears to be on his way out of St. Louis, the Rams really need to bolster their offensive line this offseason. One way to do that would be to strongly consider drafting one of the top offensive tackles available in this year’s draft.
