Packers To Re-Sign TE Marcedes Lewis

Marcedes Lewis is returning to Green Bay. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports (via Twitter) that the Packers are re-signing the tight end to a one-year deal.

The 34-year-old joined the Packers last offseason following a standout career with the Jaguars. He didn’t show much of his pass-catching prowess during his first season in Green Bay, hauling in only three receptions in 16 games.

On the flip side, Lewis did earn his worth in the blocking game. While he didn’t earn enough snaps to qualify for Pro Football Focus‘ rankings, he would have graded out as an average to above-average run blocker.

The Packers will presumably continue to rely on him in the blocking game in 2019. The team still has Jimmy Graham sitting atop their depth chart, and they’re also rostering tight ends Robert Tonyan Jr.Evan Baylis, and Malcolm Johnson.

      Don’t EVER draft or buy a TE again. The Finley year is an extreme One Off with Rodgers. Happy with the Lewis signing though. Great blocker who could catch a defense off guard with a few receptions here and there. Need O Line and WR.

      • They should’ve resigned Jared Cook. When your franchise QB lobbies to bring back a TE and you get him Martellus Bennett instead then you’re an idiot. Aka Ted Thompson.
