Chicago Bears interested in Andy Levitre

Buffalo Bills left guard Andy Levitre is a wanted man on the free agent market, and this comes as no surprise given his incredible pass blocking ability on the inside. The Bills really should have offered this guy a contract, because they will find it very difficult to hold onto Levitre now that quite a few other teams are pressing after Levitre. The Tennessee Titans are the most well-known suitors, and Levitre now has a new suitor.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Bears have interest in Andy Levitre, who also has interest from the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts. Levitre is the best pass-blocking guard in the NFL, and he is also no slouch as a run blocker. The Bears are not only interested in adding big talent at the tackle positions, but now they are also going after the premier interior offensive lineman on the free agent market this year.

The Bears are currently pressing hard after tackles Jake Long, Phil Loadholt, and Jermon Bushrod, and it will be interesting to see just how much interest they have in Levitre. To me, the best fit for Levitre is the Titans, and I have a feeling they will end up signing him. The Titans have a huge need in the interior of the offensive line, and adding Levitre would certainly make Chris Johnson a lot more happy about his offensive line situation. With Steve Hutchinson now retired, the Titans interior looks even more barren, and Levitre would be an excellent addition next to standout Fernando Velasco- he would immediately give the Titans a viable interior.

Although tackle is the more publicized need because it is such a huge one for the Bears, this team could also use help at guard. Brandon Moore is another player the Bears are expected to take a look at, but Levitre is likely Plan A.
