Atlanta Falcons: Five players who risk getting cut
3) Andy Levitre
When the Atlanta Falcons made headlines just before the 2015 season began that they had traded for left guard Andy Levitre many felt that it was a genius move. Levitre had a very good past of being a good zone blocker and did a decent job here and there. However, Levitre’s overall performance was dreadful.
He picked up the most penalties on the team and arguably cost the Falcons their week 17 game against the Saints after picking up a crucial personal foul penalty late in the game. It’s safe to say that Levitre isn’t all that well liked in Atlanta.
Levitre is owed $6 million in 2016, $6 million in 2017 and $5.8 million in 2018. There is no earthly way Levitre plays out his contract after playing so poorly in 2015. If anyone should be a cap causality it’s Levitre. The Falcons will likely address this position in free agency and could possibly find a guard in the mid rounds of the 2016 NFL draft.
