Free-agent tight end Marcedes Lewis is expected to visit the Green Bay Packers this week, according to a published report.
Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Lewis is looking to latch on with the Packers after being released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on March 20.
The Jaguars signed Lewis to a one-year, $3.5 million option on Feb. 20 before releasing him on the heels of adding free agent tight ends Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Niles Paul.
Lewis made 24 receptions for 318 yards and five touchdowns in 2017 and also had four catches for 21 yards and a score in the playoffs. The 34-year-old has 375 receptions for 4,502 yards with 33 touchdowns in 170 career games since being selected by Jacksonville with the 28th overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft.
Should Lewis join the Packers, he would add depth to the position behind offseason acquisition Jimmy Graham and Lance Kendricks. Graham signed a three-year, $30-million deal with the Packers in March.
