The Buffalo Bills will do whatever they can to keep Andy Levitre in Buffalo, but it’s going to be extremely difficult with several teams vying for Levitre’s services. One of these teams is the Tennessee Titans, who are desperate for help on their chronically poor interior of the offensive line in order to help out Chris Johnson. The Indianapolis Colts have been interested, and there are rumblings that the San Diego Chargers have interest in Levitre as well.
Levitre broke out in 2011 and quickly became regarded as one of the best guards in the NFL. One of the best pass protectors out there, Levtire is also solid as a run blocker and would be a top prize for the teams interested in him. The Bills really should have offered Levitre a contract sooner, because the waiting has made it more difficult for these guys to sign him. Because now, they are going up against several teams for his services, and the Tennessee Titans seem to be throwing everything out there in order to sign him.
Fans in the AFC East know that this big interest in Andy Levitre comes as no surprise, because he is simply a dominant guard in pass protection, and he is easily the best interior offensive lineman on this market. Now one of the most coveted players in the league, it will be interesting to see what kind of money Levitre gets from a team in a bidding war. I have a feeling that the Bills won’t be able to keep Levitre on the squad.
The Chicago Bears have also been linked to Levitre before.
