Buffalo Bills in Contract Talks with Guard Andy Levitre
Buffalo Bills‘ offensive guard, Andy Levitre, is entering the final year of his 2009 four-year contract and the team is not looking at letting Levitre get away. Buffalo is already in contract negotiations with the former second round pick, 51st overall, as he has been the MVP on that line for years. Levitre has started in every single game in a Buffalo uniform, 48 straight games, and has been the one constant on an otherwise injury-plagued line.
The left guard has proved to be one of the most important pieces of the team’s offensive line and also the most versatile. He played left tackle and center last year due to injuries on the line, something that should not be taken lightly nowadays.
Getting Levitre to come back is huge. He is maturing into an outstanding lineman and if the Bills get him to resign before the 2012 season starts, then it will certainly be for less then if they were to do it after the season. Buffalo does not want the 26-year old guard to test the free agent waters, because players do not normally come back to Buffalo when given the chance.
The fact that the Bills see this happening down the road and are looking to prevent it from coming to fruition is an extremely promising sign for Bills fans. This is another good move from an increasing aggressive style from the Buffalo front office.
