Atlanta sent the Titans a 2016 sixth-round pick and a future conditional pick for Levitre in September of last year.
Even so, McClure writes that the Falcons appear to be better taking the $1.25 million they’d pick up in cap savings by cutting him and look for upgrades at guard elsewhere.
Levitre, 29, agreed to a restructured contract with the Falcons after completing the trade that included a $5.5 million signing bonus. He has three years remaining on his current agreement, which includes base salaries of $4 million (2016), $5.25 million (2017), and $7 million (2018).
In 2015, Levitre appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 26 guard out of 82 qualifying players.
