Marcedes Lewis is coming back for a 16th season.

The veteran tight end is re-signing with the Packers on a two-year deal worth $8 million, according to multiple reports.

There are, however, conflicting reports on Lewis’ guarantees. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Lewis has $4 million in guaranteed money, but NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reports the deal includes $2.1 million guaranteed.

Lewis has played for Green Bay since 2018, after spending the first 12 seasons of his career with Jacksonville. He started 15 games in 2020, catching 10 passes for 107 yards with three touchdowns. He was on the field for 41 percent of the Packers’ offensive snaps, mainly as a blocking tight end.

Lewis was a first-round pick back in 2006. He’s made 403 total receptions for 4,804 yards with 37 touchdowns in his long career.

  1. Meh. He’s fine. I’m just tired of the Packers expecting all the same ol’ faces to each play just a teensy-weensy bit better than the year before, instead of making strategic moves with game-changing difference-makers. It’s been this way for like……forever. yawn.

  2. 10 catches for 107 yards and 3 tds. That’s one helluva a good game. Oh wait that was all year, yikes.

    It’s even worse than that. $4 mil a year for a guy that has 28 rec, 302 yards, and 4 TDs in his three seasons with the team. Seems like a 4th round pick for peanuts could do that much.

    Too bad there isn’t a stat for how many times he neutralized would-be rushers.

  6. I like Lewis. He tells it straight about Rodgers lacking leadership capabilities

  7. Does that make you feel better about finishing third cheesey? Funny thing is, Rodgers loves the big guy. That doesn’t fit your narrative though.

  8. Great re-signing by Gute. Great locker room guy and a big reason why Bobby Tonyan has grown into the player and person he has become.

    Big Dog is of course also the best blocking TE in the NFL.
