The Jaguars are expected to re-sign free agent TE Marcedes Lewis.

GM Dave Caldwell said last month he wanted to keep the veteran tight end. Lewis will be returning as a blocking complement to Julius Thomas.
Mar 7 - 2:51 PM

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell hopes to re-sign free agent TE Marcedes Lewis.

Lewis would be returning as little more than a blocking complement/backup to Julius Thomas, but has spent his entire 10-year career in Jacksonville. It's a thin year in the draft and free agency at tight end, but the sides should be able to work something out.
Feb 25 - 2:56 PM

Coach Gus Bradley wants to re-sign free agent TE Marcedes Lewis.

Lewis was reduced to a blocking role last year, failing to score a touchdown for the first time since 2011. The Jaguars want to keep him as their No. 2 tight end behind injury-prone starter Julius Thomas. Lewis shouldn’t require much more than the $2.65 million salary he made in 2015.

The Florida Times-Union expects Jacksonville to re-sign TE Marcedes Lewis.

Re-signing Lewis isn’t a priority, but Jacksonville wants to keep him as their No. 2 tight end. Entering his age-32 season, Lewis should settle for close to the veteran minimum.
Jan 2 - 8:57 PM

Marcedes Lewis (knee) is probable for Week 5 against the Bucs.

Lewis practiced in full the last two days. He's coming off his best game last week, catching 5-of-8 targets for 40 yards. Lewis should start with Julius Thomas (hand) questionable, but will have a limited blocking role when Thomas returns.

Marcedes Lewis (knee) returned to full practice on Thursday.

Lewis was absent from Wednesday's practice, though it could have just been a rest day. He caught five passes in Week 4 after being shut out in the Jaguars' first three games. He's been filling in for starter Julius Thomas, who is still recovering from hand surgery.

Marcedes Lewis (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

The injury specifics aren't yet known. With Julius Thomas still sidelined, the Jaguars could add a tight end behind Clay Harbor and Nic Jacobs.
Wed, Oct 7, 2015 07:24:00 PM

Marcedes Lewis was held without a target Week 1 against the Panthers.

The Jaguars ran two tight end sets primarily all game, but Lewis, Clay Harbor and Nic Jacobs combined for just two targets. Even with Julius Thomas out the next couple weeks, no one in the tight end group is worth fantasy consideration.

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis will primarily be a blocker this season.

With Julius Thomas in town and Clay Harbor putting together a good offseason, Lewis will be relegated to an in-line role. He will need several injuries to have any fantasy value this season.

Marcedes Lewis has accepted a $4.15 million pay cut.

Lewis has missed 13 games over the last two seasons, is entering the final year of his contract and the Jags added Julius Thomas last month. So Lewis' only choice was to accept a hefty straight pay cut that saw his salary get slashed from $6.80 million to $2.65 million. He can earn $3 million back with unlikely playing-time incentives. The cap-rich Jags add $4.4 million in space with move and now have nearly $40 million to play with and/or roll over to next year.

Jaguars restructured the final year of TE Marcedes Lewis' contract.

No details are available, but the deal was not an extension and could very well be a straight pay cut. Lewis was set to make $6.65 million in base salary and count $8.2 million against the cap. The restructuring will help make room for newly-signed C Stefan Wisniewski. Following the deal, Lewis' spot on the roster is likely secure as the in-line complement to Julius Thomas.

The Florida Times-Union suggests the Jaguars are looking to trade TE Marcedes Lewis.

Lewis is now the No. 2 tight end behind big-ticket free agent addition Julius Thomas. The blocker is also five years removed from his outlier 10-touchdown season and is entering the final year of his contract. If the Jags are willing to pay some of the money left on Lewis' deal, perhaps they could get a late-round pick for him on draft day.

The Jaguars could ask TE Marcedes Lewis to restructure his contract.

The Jaguars can afford to keep Lewis at his $8.2 million cap hit, but are reportedly looking to trade him. Entering a contract year, Lewis wouldn't get Jacksonville more than a late-round pick.
Sat, Apr 4, 2015 06:30:00 PM

Julius Thomas expects he and Marcedes Lewis to "complement each other very well."

After Thomas signed, GM Dave Caldwell said Lewis will have to compete to keep his roster spot. We fully expect Lewis to make the team despite his big cap hit. Lewis and Thomas are completely different players. Lewis should handle most of the blocking duties, allowing Thomas to move around and catch passes.
