This offseason, the focus in Buffalo is on potentially re-signing of WR Stevie Johnson, but looking forward, the Bills have a few key players entering their contract year in 2012, including OLG Andy Levitre, who had a very impressive 2011 campaign.

Levitre has started every game in his three seasons for Buffalo and moved around a bit in 2011, starting one game at center and three at left tackle. Head coach Chan Gailey confirmed to PFW that ideally, Levitre will start all 16 games at left guard.

"He creates his own problems by being so good and versatile," Gailey said from the NFL Scouting Combine. "He's the guy, and that's not fair to him, but that's the way it is in the game. He never says a word, he just goes about his business and he'll do whatever you ask him to do. I'm glad we have him on our football team."

The Bills' strength on the offensive line comes in the interior, with Levitre and C Eric Wood, who is signed through 2013.
