Titans agree to deal with Levitre
The NFL’s most attractive free-agent guard will be playing under two coaches who made the Hall of Fame at the position.
Buffalo’s Andy Levitre has agreed to a six-year, $46.8 contract with Tennessee, the Tennessean reported.
It was widely reported that Levitre would be targeted by the Titans. Levitre is only 26 years old and he graded out well last season in his fourth consecutive year as a 16-game starter in Buffalo.
The Bills wanted to keep Levitre but opted to use their franchise tag instead on safety Jairus Byrd, paving the way for Levitre to hit the free-agent market.
Levitre fills the hole created by left guard Steve Hutchinson’s retirement on Monday that was first reported by FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer.
Tennessee head coach Mike Munchak and offensive line coach Bruce Matthews are both in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as players.
