Titans Trade Andy Levitre to Falcons

New, comments

The misfit guard is headed to Atlanta.

The Andy Levitre saga has officially ended. According to multiple reports, he has been traded to the Atlanta Falcons. This ends what has been an extremely disappointing couple of years for the offensive guard.

Levitre was a disappointment from the minute he stepped into the building back in 2013. He was the highest paid offensive lineman in the class. He was injured nearly right from the beginning of his time with the Titans, and never was more than a below average guard when he was healthy. His overall weak style of play did not jive with the team's clear vision to be physical, especially up front. There was some talk of his body being right going into this year, but we quickly saw that it was not the case. A departure was probably best for both sides.

The fact that Ruston Wesbter got anything back for Levitre is a big win for the team. We will see what the compensation is shortly.

UPDATE: The Titans received a 2016 6th round pick and a conditional pick in 2017.

Again, the fact that the team received anything is outstanding. Personally, I was expecting a conditional pick similar to the Lavar Edwards deal last season around this time, which the Titans ended up never receiving Ruston Webster and company did an excellent job with this deal getting anything. Possibly getting two draft picks is icing on the cake.
