Watch: Titans’ Rodger Saffold already crushing weights, preparing for 2021
After a slow start to his tenure as Tennessee Titans in early 2019, left-wing security guard Rodger Saffold has settled in well, proving that General Manager Jon Robinson made the right decision to get him on board.
Although Saffold struggled with injuries for most of the season and his regular running mate missed most of the campaign in the left tackle at Taylor Lewan, he was a stone to the inland titans in 2020.
Saffold has posted a Pro Football Focus rating of over 70 for two consecutive seasons, and rightly received some recognition in the All-Pro voting by getting a vote after Derrick Henry's historic season.
But that's not enough to keep Saffold happy, as the veteran is already back in the gym and preparing for 2021. A season he no doubt hopes will lead to a Super Bowl.

With the Titans having to make way for the cap, there has been some speculation that Saffold may be cut, which would save the team nearly $ 8 million. However, we just don't see it because he's far too important to the Titans' elite offense, quick attack, and general culture.
The ideal scenario would be for the Titans to work out a restructuring with their veteran guard, but if nothing happens and Saffold continues to play under his current contract, we can certainly live with it given his increased level of play since the second half of 2019.
