Buffalo Bills, Andy Levitre Will Talk Contract At 2013 NFL Combine

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Jairus Byrd is not the only impending free agent that the Buffalo Bills will talk to this week, as they're scheduled to sit down with guard Andy Levitre at some point, as well.

Earlier this week, The Associated Press reported that the Buffalo Bills and the agent for free agent safety Jairus Byrd would meet in Indianapolis at this week's Combine to discuss a new contract. Now, per team president Russ Brandon (via WGR 550), we know that the team plans to do the same thing with representation for free agent guard Andy Levitre.

As we pointed out when the Byrd news broke this week, the Bills had not made much progress on a new contract with Stevie Johnson this time a year ago - but after the two sides spoke at the Combine, Johnson signed a lucrative five-year contract extension less than two weeks later. Now that the Bills are talking to both of their prime free agents this year, it's fair to expect movement on one or both before the March 4 franchise and transition tag deadline.

Often referred to as the top free agent guard available this year, Levitre, who will turn 27 in May, has started 64 straight games since the Bills made him a second-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.
