A while back, starting left guard Andy Levitre was listed as one of our potential salary cap casualties for the Falcons in 2018.
As it turns out, he will be sticking around at a lower pay-grade.
According to a report by Tom Pelissero at NFL Network, Levitre’s contract has been restructured, resulting in a $2.5 million cut in pay. This means he’s not going anywhere, at least in 2018.
#Falcons guard Andy Levitre took a $2.5 million pay cut for 2018. Now due $4.5M, including a $3.5M fully guaranteed base salary, likely ensuring he's on the team.

Levitre has played well for Atlanta’s offensive line since joining the team in 2015. Last season he was ranked No. 17 among guards by Pro Football Focus. He will become an unrestricted free agent next year.
