Rams G Rodger Saffold nominated for Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award

The NFL established the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award in 2015, recognizing players who show outstanding sportsmanship on the field each year. One player from each team is nominated, and this year, it’s Rodger Saffold who’s up for the honor.

The NFL announced its 32 nominees on Tuesday, a list that includes Cliff Avril, Joe Thomas, Marcus Mariota and Drew Brees.

Saffold hasn’t just displayed great sportsmanship on the field this season, either. He’s put together a stellar 2017 campaign, playing like one of the best guards in the NFL. He’s a big reason for the Rams’ turnaround on offense, which begins with the offensive line protecting Jared Goff and opening up holes for Todd Gurley.

The winner of the Art Rooney Award will be announced before Super Bowl LII.
