After a disagreement with the Oakland Raiders regarding his physical condition,  Rodger Saffold is returning to St. Louis to sign a five-year contract with the Rams, his agents Alan Herman and Jared Fox said Wednesday night.

Saffold signed his contract with the Rams on Wednesday afternoon after flying back to St. Louis from Oakland. ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported the five-year deal to be worth $31.7 million with $19.5 million guaranteed.

The Rams, who officially announced the move Thursday, will reintroduce Saffold to the St. Louis media Friday at noon ET.

Herman and Fox said there was a strong disagreement on Saffold's condition. The Raiders had concerns about the lineman's shoulder, while the Rams had "no concerns whatsoever."

The agents contacted Dr. Frank Cordasco at the Hospital For Special Surgery in New York, and he studied Saffold's MRIs. His review indicated nothing was wrong with Saffold's shoulder.
