NFL Trade Rumors:
Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports reports that Bills, Colts, and Titans are all in pursuit of guards Louis Vasquez and Andy Levitre.
Cole adds that Chargers odds of retaining Vasquez are “slim” at this point.
Levitre and Vasquez represent the two best interior offensive lineman in this year’s free agent class, so it’s not surprising to see these specific teams mentioned as potential landing spots.
What is curious, however, is the fact that the Bills weren’t more aggressive in trying to re-sign Levitre before now. He mentioned that he would be willing to discuss a potential return, but the team had not reached to him at all in the past few weeks.
The Chargers would like to keep Vasquez from leaving, but he seems poised to test the open market, so unless San Diego is prepared to pay him top-dollar, it seems more likely that he’ll be playing elsewhere next season.
You will find both of these players rated pretty high in our Top 50 Free Agents list.

The 4-year, 20 million dollar deal the Bills gave McKelvin contains 7.5 million guaranteed and is an overpay just because I don’t know who else would have shelled out that kind of dough for him. However, it’s very possible he ends up being worth that for them. He’s a dynamic returner who led the NFL in punt return average last year, bringing back 23 for 431 yards and 2 touchdowns...
