The Green Bay Packers have re-signed TE Marcedes Lewis. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transaction Tuesday.
Lewis (6-6, 267) spent the last two seasons with the Packers, appearing in all 32 regular-season games with 15 starts and registering 18 receptions for 195 yards (10.8 avg.) and a touchdown. He also started both postseason contests for Green Bay last season. Lewis has played in 202 regular-season games since entering the NFL in 2006, the second most among tight ends over that span behind only Jason Witten (208).
Lewis spent the first 12 seasons of his career with the Jaguars after being selected in the first round (No. 28 overall) by Jacksonville in 2006 out of UCLA. He played in 170 games with 157 starts in 12 seasons with the Jaguars and joined WRs Jimmy Smith (12,287) and Keenan McCardell (6,393) as the only players in team history to record 4,000-plus career receiving yards (4,502). Lewis ranks No. 3 in Jaguars history in receptions (375) and No. 2 in receiving TDs (33). He started all five postseason games he played in for Jacksonville, recording 10 receptions (No. 4 in franchise history) for 111 yards (11.1 avg.) and a TD.
