Saffold Adjusting to Life on the Right
He's had several months to digest the reality that it is no longer his position.
The left tackle job came with Jake Long's free agent deal so Saffold, a natural lefty, is re-learning the ropes at right tackle. Hitting the weight room hard enough that he can lay claim to being the Rams' strongest man could help him make the transition.
Saffold was right tackle for a few weeks during rookie workouts in 2010 before displacing Jason Smith. Aside from that, he hasn't played there since the ninth grade in Bedford, Ohio.
