2. Should the Baltimore Ravens sign Rodger Saffold?
Rodger Saffold could be just what the Baltimore Ravens need. Saffold is 35 years old and has been in the NFL since 2010, so he may be on his last legs. Still, that is why he probably chose not to sign with a team before training camp, knowing that he needed to preserve his body.
Overall, Saffold has 173 starts, and 10,570 total snaps. Even last year he played 1,058 snaps for the Buffalo Bills on their journey to the playoffs. With 7,289 career snaps at left guard, he could be the perfect addition to the room.
Sure. Saffold is older, but so is Zeitler. The Ravens are not signing him for the long term, they want this season and this season only. They hope the young names can step up, but until then, they can have their short-term fix.
Saffold is a massive body, which would make him a perfect fit next to the smaller but overly athletic Tyler Linderbaum. Also, we saw Saffold sign a mercenary deal with Buffalo last year, so we know he is looking for the right contender. The Ravens are a great fit, and it almost makes too much sense.
