Andy Levitre focus is getting back to 100% healthy

25 posts in this topic

I say let him test free agency and if nobody signs him and he really wants to play, resign him for vet minimum with a incentive to make 2.5M if he plays every game.

Our best guard when healthy.

Still draft a player or two.

I would want him back. 

Of course, I'd like an upgrade, but there just aren't many good options to replace him. Even if we draft one in the 1st round, we need another and the FA market is thin, meaning people will overpay for them

How close is he to getting 100%? You are right let him test free agency and if healthy sign hin for the low with incentives

I would love to have the doctors report to see if this injury is apt to resurface. It’s been a killer losing him for the better part of two seasons now and we absolutely cannot have it happen again next year.

Hes been very good until injuries and manned OG the season we made NFL history as 7th highest scoring offense in history..

He’s the Devonta Freeman of Guards. 

Both are pretty good when healthy.  

It would be nice to know the med evaluation like Gazoo mentioned. But also keep him as insurance & draft his replacement while trying to save money as Dutty mentioned.

It’s past time to invest in some tough, new, young blood along that line.  It’s no longer an area of possibility, it’s a genuine priority.

Time to move on folks. Get younger, healthier and more physical.

This. Simple. Andy was nice to have, but in a draft full of guards, move on and don't waste the cap space. People would rather have him because they know him than let him walk and replace him with an unknown.

I’ll say it again it’s the combination of him and Mack on that left side they were deadly as a duo.Both reach block and get to the 2nd level really well.

Surely injuries can’t hit us as hard as they did last season surely.

that's what we said after Smitty's first major injury season. I'm hoping we don't repeat his demise with back to back injury riddled seasons.

What got Smitty fired was preferring run stoppers over pass rushers in FA and moving Babs to DE and Kroy to the only pass rushing threat and having no clue what kind of defense they were trying to run. I bet if Smitty had a clear vision of what he wanted and was on the same page as Nolan, he'd still be here. But he didn't and got fired for it.

Andy fits here and if he gets back to 100% , i wouldn't be surprised to see us hang on to him. He might be willing to sign a small deal , just to stay here, and prove he's back. I don't think we will go into the season depending on him to be though. We probably still draft his replacement or maybe that guy is already here. Who knows.

Yep, they didn't look like they had a plan However, the injuries and lack of depth didn't really give them a chance to execute a plan, if they did have one. You can't deny that injuries had a major impact on his quick departure.

Oh I'm not denying it. Just saying the nail was in the coffin before the season even began. When your HC and DC aren't on the same page after just spending millions in FA getting the players you need to correct the prior years issues was a massive red flag. Injuries just made it worse.

Smitty hasn’t been same since his health scare.  And he never had the juice on an offense-first built team.

Man he hasn't. Which is why I didn't want him to go to Tampa. Glad he didn't have anything pop back up, but you saw it again happen down there, adding guys like Beau Allen then drafting Vita Vea over Derwin James. No he wasn't the HC, but I'm sure Koetter deferred to Smitty just like DQ deferred to Kyle/Sark for their side of the ball. You saw his adamance of playing 1980s football pop up again and it got him fired again.

A cheap one year deal and bring him along slowly. Have him in shape to start midseason. We rushed him last year and he re-injured. 

 No  brainer for a cheap deal. We need a plan A at LG though. Levitre coming back healthy would be HUGE for us.

starting a rookie guard is something we need GOOD insurance for.
