NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent G Andy Levitre on a multi-year contract.
“He plugs in at left guard for us and immediately fills a need,” said Titans general manager Ruston Webster. “He is a smart and athletic player, who plays with good toughness and leverage. He is a very good pass protector and his offensive lines have paved the way for two productive runners.”
A four-year veteran, Levitre (6-2, 305) has started all 64 games since entering the NFL as a second-round selection (51st overall) of the Buffalo Bills in the 2009 NFL Draft. He is one of only three offensive linemen from the 2009 Draft to start every game since entering the league. Levitre has been extremely versatile during his NFL career, having registered 58 starts at left guard, four at left tackle, one at center and one at right guard.
In 2011, Levitre (pronounced luh-VEE-tree) was part of an offensive line that led the NFL in fewest sacks allowed with 23; and over the past three years (2010-12), the Bills ranked fifth in the NFL in fewest sacks allowed with 87. Additionally, over that same three-year time period, the Bills ranked fourth in average per rush (4.7) and 11th in rushing yards (5,858).
Levitre played college football at Oregon State, where he registered 35 starts at offensive tackle (17 at left, 18 at right). The California native was a four-time Academic All-Pac 10 honoree.
