Since being chosen in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft out of Oregon State, Andy Levitre has started all 32 of the team’s regular season games, the only one of the team’s offensive lineman to do so.
However, that may change in 2011, as Levitre is now running with the second-team line while Chad Rinehart replaces him with the starters, reports Rodney McKissic of The Buffalo News.
“I really don’t know, you have to ask somebody upstairs,” Levitre said of the move. “It’s their decision. They told us we were going to be rotating this week and I don’t know what their long-term plan is. They said they want to see us compete and I guess that’s what is going to be.”
McKissic adds that the Bills want to get bigger up front. While both weigh in the 300 to 315-pounds range, Rinehart is 6-foot-5 while Levitre is closer to 6-foot-2.
“Chad has played pretty well during camp and he’s earned the right to compete for the job on a little bit more equal basis,” Bills head coach Chan Gailey said. “We gave him a shot and we’re going to see how that plays out. Now’s the time to give a guy a chance if he’s earned it.”
