Saffold is a nine-year veteran who has spent his whole career with the Rams, making 111 starts. His play helped them reach the Super Bowl last season. Pro Football Focus rated him as the ninth-best guard in the NFL last season.
The Titans are making a clear effort to run the ball heavily with Derrick Henry and this signing will greatly help them in that pursuit. Henry heated up at the end of last season, but with an improved line in front of him in 2019, should expect to be more consistent.
