Atlanta Falcons left guard Andy Levitre posted a heartfelt Instagram message implying that he would not be returning with the team in 2019.

When I first got traded to Atlanta I didn’t know what to expect. Didnt know much about the team, the city, the players/coaches etc. These past 4 years have been nothing short of an amazing! I am grateful to be a part of such a unique culture. My family & I have established some unforgettable memories in this city. Thank you to DQ, TD and Scott Pioli for giving me this great opportunity to showcase my skills & creating an environment I could thrive in. Looking forward to what the future holds... #inbrotherhood

Levitre started 47 games for the Falcons after being traded from the Tennessee Titans on September 4, 2015. He started all 16 games and three post season games in Atlanta's Super Bowl 51 run in 2016. The following year, in 2017, Levitre suffered a triceps injury after playing the first 12 games of the season. He later returned in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers where he re-aggrevated the triceps injury.

On September 18, 2018, after only two starts, Levitre was placed on injured reserve with the same triceps injury that plagued him in the 2017.

He was a second-round pick by the Buffalo Bills in the 2009 NFL Draft.
