Titans Expected To Keep G Andy Levitre, Despite Talk That He’s On Roster Bubble

Ian Rapoport reports that despite the talk that the Titans could cut veteran G Andy Levitre in the coming days, it sounds like they’re prepared to keep him as a backup offensive lineman.

Levitre had reportedly been working as the team’s backup center and getting mixed in with the starters from time to time with free agent addition Byron Bell practicing “extensively” with the first-team offense at left guard, which happens to be Levitre’s old position.

Levitre made an interesting comment when asked about how things have been going for him this summer.

“If it doesn’t work out here, there’s other places,” said Levitre.

Levitre, 29, signed a massive six-year, $46.8 million contract that included a $10.5 million signing bonus with the Titans back in 2013. He still has another four years remaining on the contract and stands to make a base salary of $6.5 million for the upcoming season.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Levitre would free up $2.3 million in cap space while creating $6.3 million in dead money.

In 2014, Levitre appeared in all 16 games for the Titans and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 45 guard in the league out of 78 qualifying players.

 

We’ll have more regarding Levitre and the Titans as the news is available.
