Bills left guard Andy Levitre is waiting for a contract offer from the team, Tim Graham of the Buffalo News reports.
Eleven days away from the start of the free-agency period, Levitre is wondering whether the Bills want him back.
“I’m in limbo right now,” Levitre told me this afternoon from his home in Northern California. “I don’t know what their plan is.
“Now that Jairus got his franchise tag, there’s a week and a half for them to work a deal out with me. But I haven’t been offered anything yet. We’re waiting around to see if something will pop up.”
Levitre is Buffalo’s most versatile and most durable offensive lineman. He has played every position and hasn’t missed a start in his four years since being drafted 51st overall in 2009.
Levitre said he would prefer to remain with Buffalo but admitted the prospect of striking it rich in free agency is appealing.
“It’s an exciting time for me, being able to have this opportunity,” Levitre said. “This position that I’m in, it’s once-in-a-lifetime for a lot of people. I don’t know if this’ll ever happen to me again. So it’s crossed my mind.
“It would be in the Bills’ best interests to at least throw me an offer to see if we can get this thing rolling. There’s a lot of unknown for me.”
