Packers reportedly sign former Pro Bowl TE Marcedes Lewis

The Green Bay Packers are still out here attempting to get future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers even more targets heading into the 2018 season.

After signing Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham to a multi-year deal back in March, Green Bay is doubling down on that position by reportedly adding veteran Marcedes Lewis to the mix.

The longest-tenured member of the Jacksonville Jaguars in their brief history, Lewis was let go by the organization after 12 seasons earlier this spring.

A former first-round pick out of UCLA back in 2006, Lewis’ best season came back in 2010 when he recorded 58 receptions for 700 yards and 10 touchdowns en route to earning his only Pro Bowl appearance. He put up a 24-318-5 split for Jacksonville last season.

We certainly expect Lewis to play a somewhat major role in Green Bay’s offense this coming season. It likes to use the two tight end set when the personnel dictates it. With Graham and Lewis on board, that should be prevalent in 2018.
