Rams Lose Saffold On First Day Of Free Agency

The Rams are parting ways with offensive lineman Rodger Saffold. The free agent agreed to a five-year deal worth 42.5-million-dollars with the Oakland Raiders yesterday, the first of free agency. Saffold played all four of his NFL seasons with St. Louis.

The Rams made it official yesterday, cutting veteran cornerback Cortland Finnegan. Reports surfaced last week that the move would take place. The move helps the Rams save around four-million-dollars in salary cap space. Free agents are now allowed to sign with any team.

The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
