Marcedes Lewis Drawing Trade Interest

Despite signing Julius Thomas, but Jaguars don’t plan on cutting veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis, Ian Rapoport of tweets. Teams have inquired about inquiring Lewis via trade, however.

Earlier today, Jaguars GM David Caldwell told reporters that Lewis would “have to compete to be” with the Jaguars in 2015. Lewis, 31 in May, played in only eight games last season after suffering a high ankle sprain in September. His IR-DTR status allowed him to return later in the year.

In his limited time on the field, Lewis hauled in 18 catches for 206 yards with two touchdowns. Lewis’ best season came in 2010 when he recorded 58 catches for 700 yards and ten touchdowns, though he had a similar reception total in 2012. That 2010 campaign marked Lewis’ first and only Pro Bowl selection to date.
